I've got a server system that doesn't have Xorg or any other graphics stuff on it. I just did an 'emerge sync' and noticed that there's a new version of links. I originally built links without X support, but when I try to emerge the new version, it tries to pull in Xorg and a bunch of other crap:

# USE="-X" emerge -pu links

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild U ] sys-devel/flex-2.5.33-r1 [2.5.4a-r6]
[ebuild N ] media-libs/freetype-2.1.9-r1
[ebuild N ] x11-apps/ttmkfdir-3.0.9-r3
[ebuild N ] media-libs/libpng-1.2.8
[ebuild U ] sys-devel/make-3.80-r3 [3.80-r2]
[ebuild NS ] sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.15-r5
[ebuild N ] x11-base/opengl-update-2.2.4
[ebuild N ] media-libs/fontconfig-2.2.3
[ebuild N ] x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r6
[ebuild N ] app-arch/rpm2targz-9.0-r3
[ebuild N ] sys-apps/utempter-0.5.5.6
[ebuild N ] x11-terms/xterm-207
[ebuild N ] media-libs/audiofile-0.2.6-r1
[ebuild N ] media-libs/libsdl-1.2.8-r1
[ebuild N ] media-libs/jpeg-6b-r5
[ebuild N ] media-libs/tiff-3.7.3
[ebuild U ] www-client/links-2.1_pre20 [2.1_pre19]


Why's it trying to pull in Xorg and all that related crap even though my USE variable tells it not to?

I used to have this problem too, but I solved it with this:

echo "www-client/links -X -sdl -cups" >> /etc/portage/package.use

Yes, cups and sdl want to both pull X. (Dunno why cups wants to pull X.)

This is about the tenth time I've answered this question, but anyway...

It's probably the "sdl" USE flag. Try emerge -pvt (--verbose --tree) to display USE flags and dependency relationships.
