Obviously this is non-critical, it just means there's a package that exists in tree, which can no longer be tested for bugs introduced by any in-place upgrades of dependencies ( like perl ).

All versions of texlive-core-2012 depend on dev-libs/kpathsea 

All versions of dev-libs/kpathsea block against <texlive-core-2013

Its kindof amusing portage/repoman/QA lets these sorts of problems exist :)

package: =app-text/texlive-core-2012-r1
  spec:  >=dev-libs/kpathsea-6.1.0_p20120701
    package: =dev-libs/kpathsea-6.2.2_p20160523
      spec: !<app-text/texlive-core-2013
    package: =dev-libs/kpathsea-6.2.3_p20170524
      spec: !<app-text/texlive-core-2013

ahah; well, repoman does only 1 step checking, so that kind of cycle is not detected

pre-2016 versions are just waiting for hppa to stabilize them so that they can all be simply removed
Comment 2 Alexis Ballier gentoo-dev 2018-04-13 10:36:45 UTC
those versions are gone
