That's not a new install as per the handbook. Neither are you a new 
user as you have a premade make.conf and world file and some experience 
with Gentoo.

Put yourself in the place of a brand new Gentoo user doing his/her 
first install.

It needs to just work out of the box, one way or another, without 
forums posts or calls for help in #gentoo about circular dependences.
That's not just cups - thats all circular dependencies.
