gtk? ( gtk2? ( >=dev-libs/glib-2.0.4 =x11-libs/gtk+-2* )
!gtk2? ( =x11-libs/gtk+-1.2* )
is what the current gtk use flags section looks like, which is not correct. One
one of my boxes I have been avoiding gtk-1, so my use flags are set to -gtk +gtk2.
This causes the gtk(2) frontend of ethereal not to be built!! I think the use
flags should look more like this:
gtk2? ( >=dev-libs/glib-2.0.4
gtk? ( !gtk2? ( =x11-libs/gtk+-1.2* )
Which could add pango and atk to the depends twice, but atleast it works better.
Please commit a fix for this problem :)
Sorry, but that's the way the gtk useflags work.
If that is the way use flags work then why isn't there a gtk1 flag?
Explain how to have gtk2 apps installed without gtk1 apps then...
This is invalid, but gtk use flags should be rectified so everyone understands
what they do. Here is my idea
+gtk ok to depend on gtk1 and/or gtk2
-gtk never depend on gtk if possible
+gtk1 depend only on gtk1 if possible
+gtk2 depend only on gtk2 if possible
-gtk flag overrides all
Also, a function the the gtk.eclass to generate deps would help alot to ensure

gtk2 flag is dead and burried (see Bug 106560)
