Description Christian Seiler 2004-02-10 14:46:42 UTC
While emerging the GIMP I noticed that portage wanted to emerge also the GNOME 1.4 libraries. I do not want these.

I then traced the dependency down to the package media-libs/gdk-pixbuf.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
emerge -p gdk-pixbuf without having gnome-base/gnome-libs installed and with having the gnome USE flag unset.
Actual Results:  
gnome-libs is on the list of the packages that are to be emerged.

Expected Results:  
gnome-libs should not be on the list of the packages that are to be emerged.

I modified the ebuild so that the gnome-base/gnome-libs would only be a
dependency if the gnome USE flag was set. gdk-pixbuf emerged just fine and until
now I did not have any problems with the GIMP.

Here is the patch to the ebuild.
