13 Ahem. I'm one of those people who has USE=-gtk. That doesn't mean you'll
14 _never_ get gtk on your machine. It just means that if a package you're
15 installing has _optional_ support for gtk, that support will be disabled.
16 If you install xmms, for example, you'll find gtk being pulled in as well,
17 no matter what you have in your USE flags. However, in this case, this
18 support isn't optional in the package's build system. It simply doesn't
19 configure without gtk (or gtk-config, rather).
21 I'm not sure what you mean about the Xv lib.

26 If you have a suggested fix to make gtk optional.
