Hello,recently I delete sys-libs/gpm and found that some libs (media-libs/libsdl and others) have -lgpm in dependency_libs in their .la files. For example I have /usr/lib/mpg123/output_sdl.la from media-sound/mpg123-1.2.0 and it's dependency_libs line says
dependency_libs=' /usr/lib/libSDL.la /usr/lib/libaa.la -lslang /usr/lib/libX11.la /usr/lib/libXau.la /usr/lib/libXdmcp.la -ldl -lgpm -lpthread -lm'
I use revdep-rebuild but it doesn't detect this broken dep. I ound in sources of revdep-rebuild that it founds only
/usr/lib/libSDL.la /usr/lib/libaa.la /usr/lib/libX11.la /usr/lib/libXau.la /usr/lib/libXdmcp.la
but no -lgpm.
BTW the same happens with many libs/programs depended on libSDL, which depended on aalib which depends on gpm...
