(unable to make this experiment quicker and simpler)
I'm attempting:
# emerge -ptuDN inkscape

These are the packages that would be merged, in reverse order:

Calculating dependencies         ... done!     

!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy ">=app-text/poppler-0.26.0:=[cairo]" have 
been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- app-text/poppler-9999::gentoo (masked by: package.mask, missing keyword)
/etc/portage/package.mask:
#sys-fs/udev-init-scripts
# (steveL) pulls in gdbus
# 2 ln were temporarily masked. Else wouldn't have 'emerge world'.

- app-text/poppler-0.47.0::gentoo (masked by: package.mask)
- app-text/poppler-0.46.0-r1::gentoo (masked by: package.mask)
- app-text/poppler-0.45.0::gentoo (masked by: package.mask)
- app-text/poppler-0.42.0::gentoo (masked by: package.mask)

(dependency required by "media-gfx/inkscape-0.91-r3::gentoo" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "inkscape" [argument])

man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.

And yes, poppler pulls in dbus (if I tried to unmask it).

Just as dev1fanboy says in this page:
https://git.devuan.org/dev1fanboy/Upgrade-Install-Devuan/wikis/devuan-talk-version
"Removing dbus is more involved and requires some compromises."

I know I have Gimp installed. And maybe if there were devs (I have to
remind that I'm not one, and for that reason I will soon abandon
actively participating for this time around and continue only following
the list)...

[And maybe if there were devs] with time and enthusiasm it wouldn't be
too hard to make a sans-dbus Inkscape...

# emerge -p1 liferea

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy ">=gnome-base/gconf-1.1.9:2" have been

Same thoughts as for Inkscape above.

Also about Firefox, I forgot to say that getting a san-dbus Firefox
package for Devuan is likely very little work, but on the part of a
developer/maintainer. (And see my previous post in this thread: as
advanced user I really can recommend Firefox, to my best understanding
--not a programmer, so do take it with some reserve, sure-- it has
improved privacy-wise.)

On Gentoo it is available for user who ban dbus from their systems, like
me:

# emerge -p1 firefox

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

#

The "-dbus" without quotes above means it would compile without dbus
dependency (and -p means only pretend --no actual install, and -1 this
time, do not mark this install down).

Regards to everybody! The remaining truly free world depends on the work
of people like you. I mean it.

(And if there are no followups I believe I have talked
enough for this time around)
