I wanted to do a emerge -uD world, but it tells me it's blocked. emerge -uD world --pretend returns:

Calculating world dependencies ...done!
[blocks B ] <=x11-themes/gnome-themes-2.8.2 (is blocking x11-themes/gtk-engines-2.6.3)
[blocks B ] <app-admin/gnome-system-tools-1.1.91 (is blocking app-admin/system-tools-backends-1.2.0)
[ebuild U ] dev-util/strace-4.5.11 [4.5.9]
[ebuild U ] app-shells/bash-3.0-r11 [2.05b-r9]
....

etc etc

Is there a way to permanently resolve this problem, so that I can just run emerge -uD world in the future?

You have to unmerge the blocking packages:

Jenpla, after clicking that "New Topic" button, one sees the following notice:

Which part do you not understand?

There is no general way to solve future blockers once and for all. Please see the above mentioned threads for this particular case. Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads.
