# FFMPEG_IMPL=libav emerge -1vp --nodep unpaper

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

!!! Problem resolving dependencies for app-text/unpaper

!!! The ebuild selected to satisfy "unpaper" has unmet requirements.
- app-text/unpaper-6.1-r1::gentoo-cvs USE="-test" ABI_X86="64" FFMPEG_IMPL="-ffmpeg -libav"

  The following REQUIRED_USE flag constraints are unsatisfied:
    exactly-one-of ( ffmpeg_impl_ffmpeg ffmpeg_impl_libav )

And user is liek.. wtf? Actually the output should look like:
- app-text/unpaper-6.1-r1::gentoo-cvs USE="-test" ABI_X86="64" FFMPEG_IMPL="-ffmpeg (-libav)"

since USE=libav is p.u.masked on that package. Maybe it should also more verbosely indicate that for REQUIRED_USE, to help users figure out what's happening.
