patch, works for me
Several of my desktop systems have PYTHON_SINGLE_TARGET="python2_7" PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7", but python-3.3 is required at build time for app-misc/media-player-info-21-r1.
After updating app-misc/media-player-info from version 17 to 21-r1 'emerge --depclean --with-bdeps=n -q' removed dev-python/pyxattr instead of dev-lang/python-3.3.3, because portage-2.2.7 and 2.2.8 ebuilds have this in RDEPEND:
xattr? ( kernel_linux? ( || ( >=dev-lang/python-3.3_pre20110902 dev-python/pyxattr ) ) )
My portage is compiled with python2 support only, so removing pyxattr is obviously wrong:
[ebuild R ] sys-apps/portage-2.2.7 USE="(ipc) python2 (xattr) -build -doc -epydoc (-pypy2_0) -python3 (-selinux)" LINGUAS="ru" PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7 (-pypy2_0) -python2_6 -python3_2 -python3_3 (-python3_4)"
Attached patch works fine for me, but not using eapi5 makes deps huge.
I attached a similar patch on bug 498478.
