12 You might want to check out
15 The solution suggested is to clear out obsolete and unmaintained
16 packages which may be causing your build to hit the error check
17 with.
19 emerge -av --depclean
20 perl-cleaner --all
22 Always a good idea to do a regular cleanup with depclean and I
23 suggest running perl-cleaner with the -p "pretend" option first.
