Subject: [gentoo-user] Why is xulrunner-bin required for acroread in amd64 (xulrunner not OK)

I have xulrunner installed on my x86 and amd64 machines.  When I tried
to install acroread on the amd64, it wanted to pull in xulrunner-bin.

Sure enough the ebuild contains

RDEPEND="media-libs/fontconfig
	cups? ( net-print/cups )
	x86? ( >=x11-libs/gtk+-2.0
			ldap? ( net-nds/openldap )
			!minimal? ( || ( net-libs/xulrunner
						net-libs/xulrunner-bin
						www-client/mozilla-firefox
						www-client/seamonkey
						www-client/seamonkey-bin ) ) )
	amd64? ( >=app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-baselibs-2.4.2
			>=app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-gtklibs-2.0
			!minimal? ( || ( net-libs/xulrunner-bin
						www-client/seamonkey-bin ) ) )"



So for amd64 we need (assuming not a minimal install) some emulation.
OK.

But why are the -bin packages good and the compile-from-source not good?

thanks,
allan
