>=x11-proto/xproto-7.0.6 package conflicts with x11-proto/xproto-7.0.7, neither of which are installed
which seems to point to a package, not installed:
emerge --unmerge x11-proto/xproto
--- Couldn't find 'x11-proto/xproto' to unmerge.
>>> No packages selected for removal by unmerge
blocking a later version of the same package, which itself is not installed:
emerge x11-proto/xproto --pretend
These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild N ] x11-proto/xproto-7.0.7 USE="-debug"
[blocks B ] >=x11-proto/xproto-7.0.6 (is blocking x11-libs/libX11-1.0.1-r1)
Steps to Reproduce:
2.emerge --deep world
this is a new build, using 'live-cd' to install
X starts up together with Gnome but some features fail, namely, gnome-xterm seg faults - it is an old version in need of update
there are many updates pending, I will likely be able to do all updates prior to the above package but will fail at this point
emerge -1v libX11

You misdiagnosed problem.

It conflicts with you old libX11.
It's not xproto blocking.
emerge --unmerge libX11
block was *removed* :):):)
excellent - many thanks for guidance, will try to better diagnose next time
also, thanks for rapid update - I was astonished at speed of response
