it seems that ruby & python USE flags are optional for building app-office/
koffice-libs, but ebuild does not respect this. I do not want unnecessary
dependencies in my Genotoo, tried to build it with string
in RDEPEND and it seems to work.
There is only a single scripting configure flag, but we need deterministic dependencies, so ask upstream to individual flags for the supported scripting languages.

why can't you simply add
to RDEPEND? deterministic dependencies really need for RDEPEND also? I do not care if koffice build with ruby support, but if I defenitely do not use ruby (with koffice or without) and I do not want to get it installed just because koffice CAN use it when running. basically I do not mind if scripting library Kross will be compiled, but I do not want unnecessary software (ruby) to be installed on my system. currently, koffice-libs force ruby installation.
These are build time dependencies and regarding optional runtime dependencies, I usually either force them or add a post install message. No need for use flag spam.
