Description Paolo Pedroni 2016-04-11 13:30:00 UTC
Running 'emerge --depclean' today I got this:
 * In order to avoid breakage of link level dependencies, one or more
 * packages will not be removed. This can be solved by rebuilding the
 * packages that pulled them in.
 *   dev-libs/cyrus-sasl-2.1.26-r9 pulled in by:
 *     net-fs/samba-4.2.9 needs

which, AFAIK, means that some net-fs/samba library or executable is linked to the library without it being a dependency of the net-fs/samba package.

If I 'emerge -avC cyrus-sasl' and the rebuild net-fs/samba, the latter is rebuilt without errors.
