Description Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2015-10-23 05:47:36 UTC
Currently emerge --depclean --ignore-soname-deps=n will abort due to a broken soname dependency, like this example from bug 563744:

 * Dependencies could not be completely resolved due to
 * the following required packages not being installed:
 *   x86_32: pulled in by:
 *     dev-lang/go-1.4.2

Generally, broken soname dependencies can safely be suppressed by a REQUIRES_EXCLUDE setting in the ebuild, so they should only trigger a warning message.
