Preserved rebuilds with etpan


Hi folks,


I've run into a recursive preserved rebuild message after the last system upgrade. 


This is what happens:

>>> Auto-cleaning packages...

>>> No outdated packages were found on your system.

 * GNU info directory index is up-to-date.

!!! existing preserved libs:
>>> package: sys-libs/db-4.8.30-r1
 *  - /usr/lib64/libdb-4.8.so
 *      used by /usr/lib64/libetpan.so.17.1.0 (net-libs/libetpan-1.5)
Use emerge @preserved-rebuild to rebuild packages using these libraries

Now, emerge @preserved-rebuild just rebuilds libetpan and the message above shows up again.


Any hint?


Thanks in advance!

Hey, I wanted to let you know that I've fixed it by myself:


1. Remove berkdb USE from libetpan and emerge it: I did USE=-berkdb emerge -N libetpan.

2. Re-enable that USE and re-emerge the package: I did emerge -N libetpan.
