I see that app-misc/ckb-0.4.3 ebuild pulls in pulseaudio. Can this dependency be made optional based on the pulseaudio use flag? This dependency is optional upstream.

ebuild with use flag for pulseaudio

I added the use flag "pulseaudio" to the current ebuild in my local overlay to get around the hard requirement for pulseaudio. I haven't had any issues using ckb doing this.
Comment 2 Tony Vroon (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2021-04-12 12:41:57 UTC
This is not currently possible, as there isn't an option/flag to enable/disable pulseaudio upstream:

As a consequence, your proposed change, without changing the build system, would still build with pulseaudio if it was on disk.
