emerge --info

I'm in middle of @world update, and dev-lang/perl was updated already, but dev-perl/Pango was not updated yet.

[ebuild   R    ] dev-perl/Gtk2-1.249.920::gentoo  USE="-test" 0 KiB
[ebuild   R    ] dev-perl/Pango-1.227.0::gentoo  USE="test -examples -minimal" 0 KiB

dev-perl/Gtk2 fails to build with:
MakeMaker FATAL: prerequisites not found.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
    Pango not installed

If I not mistake, the fix would have something to do with subslots?

This is portage's problem, not much perl can do about it.

When X requires Y, portage's responsibility is to ensure Y is working before attempting installing X.

Portage is failing to do this and simply ordering the build order wrong.

So basically, what actually happens is portage tries to install X where Y is so broken its "practically not even installed".

"only" been a problem since 2007 ....
