[blocks B ] <net-ftp/pure-ftpd-1.0.20-r2 (is blocking net-ftp/ftpbase-0.00)
as written in ebuild
lots of time with this block...

Do you have any other ftp server installed? Or did you have one and you switched
to pure-ftpd now?
i have pure, vsftp and proftp
i had pure installed lots time ago, and i'm using it for my personal intranet
No good workaround for you then besides downgrading the other ftp daemons to
versions that do not depend on ftpbase and uninstalling ftpbase then. Hmm, this
