It will fix the "out of the box" circular dependency for people who
switch to a default desktop profile. This is the main problem we
need to solve now. Certain useflag and package combinations
will trigger a circular dep, that is a know occurrence in Gentoo.
But at least with a default configuration things should work out of
the box. For other configurations there are workarounds (in this
case: install gtk+ without cups, or poppler without cairo enabled
