16:16 <@Betelgeuse> ssuominen: then you don't want virtual/jre in DEPEND
16:17 <@Betelgeuse> ssuominen: it confuses the vm switching code
16:17 <@Betelgeuse> ssuominen: the latter is what you should do
16:17 < ssuominen> ah, right the DEPEND=$RDEPEND...
16:17 <@Betelgeuse> you are telling it that building with a jre is fine
16:17 < ssuominen> propably want to use COMMON_DEPEND and separate the RDEPEND with it
16:17 < ssuominen> right?
16:18 <@Betelgeuse> ssuominen: or RDEPEND="${RDEPEND} virtual/jre-1.5" after declaring DEPEND
16:18 < ssuominen> nod
16:18 <@Betelgeuse> We should add a eqawarn to our eclasses if there's both virtual/jdk and virtual/jdk atoms
16:18 <@Betelgeuse> jdk && jre

repoman actually spits out a dependency.missingslot warning if you get this wrong but the error message doesn't relate specifically to this problem. All our >= virtual entries fall foul of dependency.missingslot but repoman knows that this is okay for DEPEND=">=virtual/jdk-x.x" and RDEPEND=">=virtual/jre-x.x". It's only when you mix them up that it complains.

I know to look out for this but other developers have misinterpreted it and incorrect restricted the virtuals to a specific SLOT.

In rare situations, such as ant-core, it is correct to mix these up so it shouldn't be a fatal error. By the same token, it should probably be a repoman warning rather than an eqawarn.
