Description Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev 2021-11-16 18:06:22 UTC
After removing x11-libs/gtk+ I got a preserved-libs event for media-gfx/graphviz which indicates an automagic:

> !!! existing preserved libs:
> >>> package: x11-libs/gtk+-2.24.33
>  *  - /usr/lib64/
>  *  - /usr/lib64/
>  *      used by /usr/lib64/graphviz/ (media-gfx/graphviz-2.49.0)

Can confirm this exact same issue. Rebuilding it seems to work fine.

    media-gfx/graphviz: Fix automatic dependency on x11-libs/gtk+:2
    There was a collection of errors that lead here:
    - In bug #682520 it was reported that IUSE=gdk-pixbuf didn't add any
      dependencies, so it should be enabled unconditionally. The maintainer
      enabled gdk-pixbuf unconditionally (but, see later items) in commit
      9d4127b9ff8 ("media-gfx/graphviz: enable gdk-pixbuf unconditionally")
      rather than recognizing that graphviz was missing a dependency on
    - But in that fix, the maintainer replaced the already-wrong
      $(use_enable gdk-pixbuf) with --enable-gdk-pixbuf, whereas the correct
      option was --with-gdk-pixbuf.
    - The maintainer apparently recognized that it needed a dependency on
      x11-libs/gdk-pixbuf, so he added it in commit 39994ea59fb
      ("media-gfx/graphviz: add missing x11-libs/gdk-pixbuf dep") but for
      some reason added it to BDEPEND instead of DEPEND/RDEPEND. This was
      pointed out in 682520#c3 and 682520#c4 but not acted on.
    - In bug #828552 it was reported that --enable-gdk-pixbuf was an unknown
      argument to ./configure. As a result, it was removed in commit
      066d7617103 ("media-gfx/graphviz: remove unknown configure
      arguments"), rather than switching to the correct --with-gdk-pixbuf
    gdk-pixbuf is used by the plugin. It is used only if
    both --with-gdk and --with-gdk-pixbuf are used (both are enabled if not
    The --with-gdk option requires gdk-2.0.pc, which is provided by
    x11-libs/gtk+:2. The --with-gdk-pixbuf option requires
    gdk-pixbuf-2.0.pc, which is provided by x11-libs/gdk-pixbuf:2. Since
    gdk-pixbuf is linked in only if x11-libs/gtk+:2 is enabled, control its
    usage with the existing IUSE=gtk flag.
