Calculating dependencies... done!

 * Error: circular dependencies:

(dev-ruby/hoe-2.12.5::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) depends on
 (dev-ruby/rdoc-3.12::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) (buildtime)
  (dev-ruby/hoe-2.12.5::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) (buildtime)

It might be possible to break this cycle
by applying any of the following changes:
- dev-ruby/rdoc-3.12 (Change USE: -doc)
- dev-ruby/hoe-2.12.5 (Change USE: -doc)

Note that this change can be reverted, once the package has been installed.

Note that the dependency graph contains a lot of cycles.
Several changes might be required to resolve all cycles.
Temporarily changing some use flag for all packages might be the better option.

Oops, dev-ruby/rdoc it depends on dev-ruby/hoe, and dev-ruby/hoe depends on dev-ruby/rdoc


        rdoc? ( >=dev-ruby/rdoc-3.9.4[ruby_targets_ruby19] )
        xemacs? ( app-xemacs/ruby-modes )"

ruby_add_bdepend "
        doc? ( >=dev-ruby/hoe-2.7.0 )
        test? (

ruby_add_bdepend "doc? ( dev-ruby/rdoc )"
# - also requires dev-ruby/hoe-seattlerb for 1.9;
# - dev-ruby/gemcutter is an optional dependency at both runtime and
#   test-time, at least for us;
# - rubyforge is loaded at runtime when needed, so we don't strictly
#   depend on it at runtime, but we need it for tests (for now);

I understand that this is inconvenient, but all dependencies are valid...
