13 Okay, this should have fixed a lot of broken things. I guess your revdep-
14 rebuid list would be even longer without this library.

23 PyQt is in the kde-sunset overlay which contains all stuff needed for KDE
24 3.5. Do you have such things installed? Or is PyQt accidentally in your
25 /var/lib/portage/world file? emerge -pv --depclean PyQt should show you
26 which stuff pulls it in.
27 If you think nothing needs it, remove it with emerge -Ca PyQt, and try
28 revdep-rebuild again. Or add the kde-sunset overlay with layman.

34 I do not have it set explicitely, but for me this USE flag is also
35 activated, probably because of the desktop profile. I do not have PyQt
36 installed.
