 Unmerge what you don't need or remerge (after emerging kde 3.5) what you
 still need. When you are done with that the above command should give no
 output and any files still in /usr/kde/3.2 - 3.4 can be safely deleted
 since they belong to no package. Pay attention to what you do though. A
 revdep-rebuild before this step will probably take care of most of this.

Well, something is messed up. I still get many many blocks:

 =kde-base/kdepim-3.5* (is blocking 
kde-base/libkpgp-3.5.0-r1) [blocks B     ] =kde-base/kdepim-3.5* (is 
 [blocks B     ] =kde-base/kdepim-3.5* (is 
blocking kde-base/libkpimidentities-3.5.2)
 [blocks B     ] =kde-base/kdepim-3.5*  (is 
blocking kde-base/libkdepim-3.5.2-r1)
 [blocks B     ] =kde-base/kdepim-3.5* (is 
blocking kde-base/libkcal-3.5.2-r1)  

[blocks B     ] =kde-base/kdegraphics-3.5* 
(is blocking kde-base/kamera-3.5.2)
[blocks B     ] =kde-base/kdegraphics-3.5* 
(is blocking kde-base/kghostview-3.5.2)
[blocks B     ] =kde-base/kdegraphics-3.5* (is blocking

I after deleting  everything. I unmerge everthing (KDE) I thought:
467    emerge --unmerge kde-base/kdewebdev
  468    emerge --unmerge kde-base/kdeadmin
 470    emerge --unmerge kde-base/kdemultimedia
  471    emerge --unmerge kde-base/kdepim
  472    emerge --unmerge kde-base/kdeutils
 475    emerge --unmerge kde-base/kdetoys
  477  emerge --unmerge kde-base/kdegraphics
 480  emerge --unmerge kde-base/kdenetwork

but they are still blocking?

I tried revdep-rebuild
emerge --rsync  and
env-update && source /etc/profile && etc-update && 
update-eix && eupdatedb

Yet the system think they are gone, for example:

emerge --unmerge kde-base/kdegraphics
--- Couldn't find 'kde-base/kdegraphics' to unmerge.

Yet is still one of the blocking packages?

[blocks B     ] =kde-base/kdegraphics-3.5* (is blocking 
.[blocks B     ] =kde-base/kdegraphics-3.5* 
(is blocking kde-base/kgamma-3.5.2)
.[blocks B     ] =kde-base/kdegraphics-3.5* 
(is blocking kde-base/kmrml-3.5.2) 

What did I miss?
