2008-05-01 Thread Hanno Böck
Hi, Recently, GIMP got it's first development version based on gegl. Now, gegl has 13 optional dependencies that could be use-flagged. The pity is, it has no configure-option for most of them, they are autodetected. (It's about gtk, ruby, lua, cairo, pango, libpng, openexr, rsvg, sdl,

[gentoo-dev] RFC: language bindings as separate packages

2008-05-01 Thread Enrico Weigelt
Hi folks, while building yum, I again ran into trouble because one dependency has to be rebuilt with an specific useflag first (in this case it was libxml2 + python useflag). Actually, there are *lots* of these cases and (AFAIK) portage has no way for properly handling this - it's up to the
