Hi all,

I'm not sure whether this goes to gentoo-dev or gentoo-users, so I appologise in advance for the cross-post.

The problem I am having is this:

I am trying to remove the dev-libs/glib package from my system.
It is not in the world file, and it isn't in /etc/make.profile anywhere.
However, emerge -uD world insists on installing it.

I have attempted to find the package that depends on it, but I get the following results:

dep-clean -Cv
Retrieving currently merged packages.
128 currently merged packages.

Retrieving system packages.
89 packages contained in system.

Preparing world file.

Preparing list of installed world packages.

8586	ebuilds available.
42	packages contained in final world file.

List prepared, checking dependencies with emerge -eup
130 packages contained in final image.

These packages have no other packages depending on them.
Total of 0 unneeded packages.

These packages are depended upon but are not present on the system.
dev-libs/glib-1.2.10-r5
dev-libs/glib-2.2.1
Total of 2 needed packages.

These packages are installed but not in the portage tree.
Total of 0 removed packages.

Then, here is what qpkg tells me about the package:

qpkg -nc -q -i dev-libs/glib
dev-libs/glib-2.0.4-r1
DEPENDED ON BY:
dev-libs/glib-1.2.10-r5
DEPENDED ON BY:
dev-libs/glib-2.0.6-r1
DEPENDED ON BY:
dev-libs/glib-2.0.7
DEPENDED ON BY:
dev-libs/glib-2.2.0
DEPENDED ON BY:
dev-libs/glib-2.2.1
DEPENDED ON BY:

Here are my use flags:
USE="-cups -gif -gnome -gpm -gtk -imlib -kde maildir -jpeg -nls -png -qt -svga -X -xv -xmms -truetype -tcpd"

What is going on here?  Can someone tell me why my system thinks this packag is needed?

Thanks,

William
