Subject: [gentoo-user] --depclean wants to remove openrc. Yikes!

1 Hello, Gentoo.
3 As prompted after the recent perl update, I did # emerge --depclean -va.
5 emerge included openrc (the only version of it on my system) in the
6 packages it planned to remove. It was kind enough to give me a warning
7 that this "might" do bad things, but I was somewhat shocked to see it
8 there at all. I might have accidentally typed 'y' instead of 'n'.
10 Maybe the program wants revenge at me executing so seldomly. Or
11 something like that.
13 But now, my question is how can I trust --depclean even a little bit
14 after that? Do I have to go through all the package versions, manually
15 removing the obsolete ones? There are several hundred. :-(
17 What do I do?
19 Help!
