Is it possible to show a specific error message when running in a circular dependency? When I get it right, the problem occurs only one time when solved with a bundled use flag. As soon as expat and/or cmake are installed, follow up versions can be merge without problems. If an error message can be shown, maybe this is enough as a hint: "expat and cmake have circular dependencies. Emerge it the first time with: USE=bundled-cmake emerge -1 cmake expat and then just don't care anymore about this use flag." Of course, the same applies for other known circular dependencies, too. At least for me as a user, this would be enough. Best, Gerion
