Description Peter Read 2006-01-02 14:13:42 UTC
ebuild appears to pull in arts even with USE="-arts".  running ~amd64.

games-board # emerge -av knights

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild  N    ] kde-base/arts-3.5.0-r1  USE="alsa jack mp3 nas vorbis -arts -artswrappersuid -debug -esd -kdeenablefinal -xinerama" 927 kB
[ebuild  N    ] games-board/knights-0.6  USE="-arts -debug -kdeenablefinal -xinerama" 2,623 kB

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. USE=-arts in make.conf
2. emerge knights 
Actual Results:  
ebuild wants to pull in arts although has arts use flag, implying dependancy is optional.

Expected Results:  
If no required dependancy on arts, program to build and install normally without installing arts first.  If arts really is a required dependancy, the use flag should be removed.
