--depclean wants to remove vital packages

Question

Hello there.
I'm a bit confused.
I have a fresh funtoo installation with Mate-desktop.
After emerge -auDN @world
Portage recomments to do a --depclean.,
but when i do, it wants to remove a lot of mate-packages, and some other packages, that seem to me vital.
For now, i just cancel the act, because i'm affraid that the system won't boot anymore.
Can anyone tell me if it's safe to answer "yes" to the action?

A full list of packages, that Portage pulls for deletion, can be found here:

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your answer.

This is all; my world file:

bwg-inc aposteeltje # cat /var/lib/portage/world
app-admin/sudo
app-portage/eix
app-portage/layman
dev-util/cmake
dev-util/quilt
mate-base/mate-control-center
mate-extra/mate-power-manager
media-fonts/infinality-ultimate-meta
media-fonts/ubuntu-font-family
media-libs/fontconfig-ultimate
media-video/smplayer
net-libs/glib-networking
net-libs/libproxy
net-libs/libsoup
net-misc/networkmanager
sys-boot/boot-update
sys-kernel/debian-sources
sys-kernel/linux-firmware
www-client/firefox-bin
x11-apps/xinit
x11-base/xorg-x11
x11-misc/lightdm
x11-misc/lightdm-gtk-greeter
x11-themes/mate-backgrounds
bwg-inc aposteeltje #

 

Mate isn't included in the @world file, but i DID merged it with emerge -a mate, so shouldn't it be recordered in the world file?

Indeed i'm running Mate-1.12

Running the command again, pulls version 1.14 :

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

[blocks B      ] net-analyzer/mate-netspeed ("net-analyzer/mate-netspeed" is hard blocking mate-base/mate-applets-1.14.1-r1)

 

Or should i just perform: emerge -auDN @world --keep-going

And will it then be recordered in the world file?
