Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2022-01-17 08:49:58 UTC
I was wondering why I was getting this log message in all my systems upon updating of pdftk package:
Install dev-java/java-dep-check for dependency checking

I then saw it comes from java-utils-2_pkg_preinst in java-utils-2.eclass and I wondered why I need to manually emerge that package instead of getting it automatically pulled as BDEPEND as it seems to be needed 

Thanks

dev-java/java-dep-check inherits java-pkg-2.eclass, making it an indirect descendant of java-utils-2.eclass.  If we put BDEPEND="dev-java/java-dep-check" into java-utils-2.eclass, it would effectively be added into dev-java/java-dep-check too, creating a package that unconditionally depends on itself.  Therefore, this is not feasible.

Anyway, the dependency check is just an optional check enabled by setting the JAVA_PKG_STRICT variable.  Setting or unsetting JAVA_PKG_STRICT does not make any difference in terms of functionality and correctness of the build artifacts.

(We could actually add an exemption for that package.)
