Could some dev change the requirement of hellanzb to use app-arch/unrar-gpl instead of app-arch/unrar-3.8.5 as this will resolve a block, as hellanzb wants unrar-3.8.5 and other apps use unrar-gpl.
This causes a block to be thrown up
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Emerge hellanzb
app-arch/unrar-gpl cannot unpack any recent .rar files. It will also break portage unpack() if it is installed and used to unpack such a file.
You should uninstall -gpl for now and install app-arch/unrar or app-arch/rar instead.
Other apps (e.g. mplayer) should have deps like:
|| ( app-arch/unrar-gpl app-arch/unrar app-arch/rar )
so should be fine if -gpl is missing.
Please reopen this bug report after arguing to the contrary of the position of comment #1 (which sounds plausible to me).
