I agree and this is exactly what my tracker is about, to track porting issues or even misuse of gtk{,2,3} useflags. You confuse me. My tracker has shown that not all ebuilds follow that policy or even can't because of migration issues or cause they are special in another way. If you think I missed something in my explanation there, add a comment. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.19 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJP5uzxAAoJEFpvPKfnPDWzzO8H/1+Zs4BiZWIPwsLmCTfHWdH8 kGBylD/TKhJqOU9BimIzlqqKVa0Ikw/hak2vWSdsor/P5dJ/oAQqvUK+S9HWsEaI fCxzoZQZ/ghbYE4a3Ob8V0KWc0602OYO0WKZ9DAHqb47377VYO/CIQ2tsBG9oKM5 gah5fBZnf9mbMGRKREkPLwMG5L6Nl9j34JNO+BB5xBAWhLnNp3JmWfKLMzILWaKf R14uHG78ETDVp3uvQdgbMYzEzRE+a8iaH0lF9ekJwJ5qcGGWhP4mafDHTO4PGPjM OC9Hqt9eMqQFLdjaAxguH9HDyWEhoEg90RQfSK+FsOj2HOMX5s/XevXrdrNF2Uk= =hxx4 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
