start firefox-bin (3.0) without installed gnome (and gconf-2)
/opt/firefox/crashreporter: error while loading shared libraries: libgconf-2.so.4: connot open shared object file: No such file or directory
libgconf-2.so.4 is in gnome-base/gconf-2
#> emerge -av \>gnome-base/gconf-2
but now libgconf-2.so.4 is under /usr/lib64 and not /usr/lib32. which one is used by firefox-bin? the error is still the same.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge firefox-bin-3.0 without gconf installed
I'm not sure, but i think thats not going to work...mozilla-firefox-bin is a 32bits binary, so it can't use 64bits libs...
what are we supposed to do here ?
Just confirm that i'm right or wrong :P

well yeah afaik this is not working, either it's 32 bits binary + 32 bits libs or 64 bits binary + 64 bits libs, a mix doesn't work.
This would need to be in on of the emul-linux-x86 packages.
Well as of now the "Gnome Configuration System" is in none of the emul packages.. Shouldn't app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-gtklibs take it in?
You'll have to talk to amd64 about that; they own the emul-linux-x86-* packages. Presumably nothing binary so far has needed gconf.
