Okay, stop me if you've heard this one.  I'm trying to emerge muine, some kind
of music player.  But the emerge fails with:
" * In order to compile muine, you need to have sys-apps/dbus emerged
 * with 'mono' in your USE flags. Please add that flag, re-emerge
 * dbus, and then emerge muine.

!!! ERROR: media-sound/muine-0.8.3 failed.
!!! Function pkg_setup, Line 67, Exitcode 0
!!! sys-apps/dbus is missing the .NET binding.
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message."

I always thought that USE flags would never block a build.  That if an ebuild
really needed some piece of software, it would handle it itself.  Sure, I say,
install what Mono stuff you have to get this muine working, just don't install
it anywhere else.  Shouldn't the muine ebuild (/portage) handle this dependency

Reproducible: Always

Portage cannot handle such dependencies (yet), sorry.
