Actually, believe it or not, it is. The "right" way to install all of the basic GNOME stuff is to merge gnome-base/gnome-1.2.4-r1.ebuild first, then all of its dependencies. For kde, merge kde-base/kde-2.0.1, and then all its runtime dependencies. Soon, we'll have recursive builds and packages working, and these kinds of things will resolve themselves. -- Daniel Robbins <drobbins@g.o> President/CEO Gentoo Technologies, Inc.
