Description Kent Fredric (IRC: kent\n) gentoo-dev 2019-06-28 14:34:24 UTC
At the end of a recent world upgrade, I found this in @package-preserved:

>>> package: dev-libs/libffi-3.3_rc0
 *  - /usr/lib64/libffi.so.6
 *  - /usr/lib64/libffi.so.6.0.4
 *      used by /usr/lib64/lua/5.1/lgi/corelgilua51.so (dev-lua/lgi-0.9.0)

I investigated and sure enough, the only dep for ffi is:

    virtual/libffi


Fixing this to read:

    virtual/libffi:0=

Would mean upgrading virtual/libffi ( which forces upgrading dev-libs/libffi ) would trigger a rebuild of lgi
