Is that something Gentoo's ebuild introduces, or GNOME ships?

Once upon a time neon was a dependency of evolution, but maybe they froze it in for some (bad, but hey) reason

Comment 2 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2008-01-22 13:54:26 UTC
I just checked out the code to make sure. We add a RDEPEND on neon while gnome-vfs doesn't allow building with system's library.

Last date in the imported lib's Changelog is "Sun Sep 12 19:21:30 2004" so I guess it's pretty old.
Comment 3 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2008-04-05 16:53:11 UTC
for 2.22, I just removed the dep. Not sure this is ever going to be fixed unless we are provided with patches because gnome-vfs is supposed to die in favor of gvfs.
Comment 4 Rémi Cardona gentoo-dev 2008-09-24 09:33:42 UTC
No-one cares about gnome-vfs now, we'll just let it slowly die away :)

And FWIW, gvfs now uses libsoup...
