Description Eric F. GARIOUD 2022-10-18 08:31:12 UTC
lddtreeing some program, I discover that I get a circular dependency : => /usr/lib64/ => /usr/lib64/ => !!! circular loop !!!

Ok, this is a known problem well documented ( ) being solved rebuilding freetype USE=-harfbuzz

The problem I report here is that if I want to rebuild harfbuzz having freetype installed USE = +harfbuzz, emerge will work happily without reporting any error such as shown in the wikipage linked hereabove.

Reproducible: Always

For a start, please use a non-masked Portage.
