Description Eduardo Moscoso Rubino 2009-08-15 11:46:12 UTC
If both "pam" and "ssh" use flags are used, there is a circular dependency between  
openssh and pambase when firt installing these two apps.

Reproducible: Always

I have the same problem

 * Error: circular dependencies:

('ebuild', '/', 'sys-devel/gcc-4.4.2', 'merge') depends on
  ('ebuild', '/', 'sys-libs/glibc-2.11-r1', 'merge') (buildtime)
('ebuild', '/', 'sys-libs/glibc-2.11-r1', 'merge') depends on
  ('ebuild', '/', 'sys-devel/gcc-4.4.2', 'merge') (buildtime)

 * Note that circular dependencies can often be avoided by temporarily
 * disabling USE flags that trigger optional dependencies.

Really nothing we can do about it :/ Sorry!
