As discussed with ferdy on #gentoo-dev, it's no longer possible to reasonably maintain these on 2.4 profiles, so it's easier to mask the whole thing because alpha still needs 2.4 profile for certain HW.
Gnome/Xfce part is finished, see http://dev.gentooexperimental.org/~jakub/2.4-cleanup/alpha-no-nptl-2.4/
KDE folks requested to be added to this as well, I'll do the work once the first part gets merged.
OK, all done, including KDE. Same URL.
Eh, nice waste of my time, thanks.
What happened here? Why is this a CANTFIX?

ferdy - because I just wasted about half day of my time producing a patch on profiles. Alas, these profiles change on a daily basis, the ebuilds concerned change as well, so that patches are plain useless ATM and I don't intend to repeat the same mistake again.
