I went to update my Gentoo installation after a few months of humming along, and quite unexpectedly found it was trying to install xorg (I run a text-only server). I've seen recent complaints about incorrect dependencies on Gnome, but nothing regarding this (the one thread I did post on was moved to duplicate threads before anything could come of it).

Previous references to the unrelated Gnome issue are here and here.

Here's the output when I tried to update (see the string of new entries starting with "xterm") [EDIT - see verbose output below].

And here's the dependency graph on xterm - nothing should be pulling this in:
Code:
# equery depends xterm
[ Searching for packages depending on xterm... ]
#

Any thoughts?

Add -v to your emerge options so we can see if any use flags are pulling anything

Learn something new every day...
Code:
# emerge -putvD world

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

Disable the 'xv' flag, that should fix your problem.

I'd disable gif, png, and jpeg while you're at it, unless there's a specific reason to have them.

Thanks! Just so I'm not back here bothering people in the future, how did you figure that out?

I just recognised the xv flag. =]
Code:
~ $ equery u mplayer
 + + xv            : Adds in optional support for the Xvideo extension (an X API for video playback)
(bunch of extra lines removed)

xv is the video output of choice if you run X on an nvidia card.

X is fairly pervasive, keeping it out of your install can be difficult. I'd install ufed and go through the entire list, and remove anything you don't need.

When you do run into these cases where something's getting installed in an emerge -uD world, you can go through the whole list of packges and emerge -ptv them all, to narrow down which package is causing it to be installed. Once you figure out which package is causing it, do trial and error via 'USE="-flag" emerge -pv package' until you figure out which flag is bad.

Good catch pigeon768. I was just thinking that it would be useful to have some meta-use flags such as noX which would automatically turn off all use flags that would bring in X.

Just for reference, here's my new USE flag (as far as I know, it will block X - anything I should add?):

USE="-X -Xaw3d -xv -motif -qt -kde -gtk -gtk2 -gnome -bitmap-fonts -truetype-fonts -type1-fonts -truetype -opengl -xmms -sdl -arts"
