Description Ben Davis 2006-06-12 13:51:09 UTC
Portage desparately needs USE-level dependancy checking.  For instance,  pgadmin3 is dependant on wxGTK, but will not compile unless wxGTK is compiled with the "unicode" USE flag. However,  if I emerge pgadmin,  it proceeds to compile wxGTK _without_ unicode support, then when it gets to pgadmin, it tells me I need to re-emerge wxGTK with the "unicode" use flag enabled.

It would be very time-saving to the user if the portage would check dependancies on the USE level, and recompile any apps requiring a change in USE flags.
