Subject: [gentoo-user] New dependencies suddenly popping up

1 Hello list,
3 After my daily sync today, portage wanted to emerge two new packages: dev-
4 libs/lzo and x11-misc/makedepend. No other packages were mentioned. Odd, I
5 thought, so:
7 $ equery d lzo
8 * These packages depend on lzo:
9 [...]
10 X11-libs/cairo-1.12.14-r4 (dev-libs/lzo)
12 $ equery d makedepend
13 * These packages depend on makedepend:
14 app-cdr/cdrtools-3.01_alpha17 (x11-misc/makedepend)
16 But cairo was last emerged 16 days ago and cdrtools last September, so why
17 have these dependencies suddenly appeared today? Portage has been at 2.2.7
18 since last year too. Emerge --info doesn't mention lzo.
20 I can't think of anything else that might have changed, unless new
21 dependencies have been shoved into the ebuilds. Does that sort of thing happen
22 in a well run family?
