I do often run into the blocker situation as attached, which can be circumvented by :

echo "sys-apps/man-db -nls" >> img1/.../etc/portage/package.use/setup 

and I do wonder, if this is caused by the arbitrarily chosen USE flag setup or if there's room for improvement either in the ebuild definitions (of po4a ?) or in the resolver of portage.
