interesting. I did not know that an ebuild can use-depend on itself. Good to know. I had implemented a simpler solution in meantime. But I will test your solution. It would shorten the ebuild by a good amount (It is already much to big and complicated). Furthermore it catches the problems very early (before merging the wrong dependencies). Only downside I see is that the user has to find out why she gets the messages about the wrong USE flag requirements. Say, you want to build it with mysql and have 'sqlite' in make.conf your USE=mysql emerge bacula resultes in a emerge: there are no ebuilds built with USE flags to satisfy "app-backup/bacula[-mysql,-postgres]". And than you have to think. Anyway I will think over it.
