Sounds like you need to stick this in /etc/portage/package.keywords:

sys-kernel/rt-sources	~x86

Do you know how to use equery, ie:

$ equery list -p -o -i rt-sources

...will list everything matching the specified package (rt-sources) in
portage (-p) overlays (-o) and any you've currently got installed (-i).

In the past I've used vanilla-sources and manually applied the RT
patch. Worked just fine.
