Description Jeroen Roovers gentoo-dev 2013-05-31 14:40:01 UTC
# emerge --buildpkgonly -va net-mail/qmailadmin

These are the packages that would be built, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild  N     ] net-mail/autorespond-2.0.4  0 kB
[ebuild  N     ] mail-mta/netqmail-1.06-r2  USE="ssl -authcram -gencertdaily -highvolume -qmail-spp -vanilla" 0 kB
[ebuild  N     ] virtual/qmail-1.03  0 kB
[ebuild  N     ] net-mail/vpopmail-5.4.33  USE="-clearpasswd -ipalias -maildrop -mysql -spamassassin" 0 kB
[ebuild  N    ~] net-mail/qmailadmin-1.2.16  USE="-maildrop -vhosts" 380 kB

Total: 5 packages (5 new), Size of downloads: 380 kB

Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No] Yes <=== interactive

!!! --buildpkgonly requires all dependencies to be merged.
!!! Cannot merge requested packages. Merge deps and try again.

^=== It fails after going interactive.

I would expect it to fail before asking this (meaningless) question
