You need to install something like netscape which will provide virtual/x11-web-browser. We're a bit behind in this area (we only have Netscape 4.75, not 6... and Mozilla M18 I think). If you want, just edit the ebuild to remove teh virtual/x11-web-browser dependency and try again.

I just fixed that so that it's dependent on >=qt-2.2.2, which will allow you to use a newer version. -- Daniel Robbins <drobbins@g.o> President/CEO Gentoo Technologies, Inc.
