I'd love to get this fixed. The dependencies don't look so bad to me. Aren't gnome-python and gst-python the only gnome depedencies: pygtk python pysqlite gnome-python gtkmozembed-python xorg-server dbus-python xulrunner pyrex imagemagick xine-lib rb_libtorrent gst-python Here's a link to the ebuild: http://bugs.gentoo.org/attachment.cgi?id=186070 - Grant
