Subject: [gentoo-user] Ruby is infesting my machine

Hi all,
    Just done an "eix-sync" followed by an "emerge --pretend -NuD world"
and for some reason, something wants to install Ruby stuff everywhere -
I don't currently have any ruby stuff installed. I have in my make.conf
"-ruby" and "RUBY_TARGETS=""". Looking at "equery depends ruby" shows 4

app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets-1.78.0-r1 (ruby ? dev-lang/ruby:1.9)
                                           (ruby ? dev-lang/ruby:2.0)
dev-util/universalindentgui-1.2.0-r1 (ruby ? dev-lang/ruby)
dev-vcs/subversion-1.8.13-r2 (ruby ? >=dev-lang/ruby-2.1:2.1)
media-gfx/graphviz-2.38.0 (ruby ? dev-lang/ruby)

I've gone into package.use and put a "-ruby" for these four and the
problem persists.

Looking at the output from "emerge --pretend -NuD world" shows the first
mention of ruby is "eselect-ruby". Putting this into package.mask does
nothing, it still appears in the emerge list and now also at the bottom
of the emerge output under "The following mask changes are necessary to

"emerge --tree --pretend dev-lang/ruby" appears to also have
eselect-ruby as the cause of the trouble.

	Does anyone know how I can prevent this infestation from happening?
