There is clearly something fundamental about portage that I don't understand.

Why is it that 176 packages get emerged when I emerge wpa_supplicant, even numerous X11 related packages?

How can I undo this operation and only emerge wpa_supplicant?

It looks like wpa_supplicant has a qt4 use flag. It probably has the option of providing some kind of GUI.

Try adding:

Quote:
net-wireless/wpa_supplicant -qt4


to your /etc/portage/package.use and see if this large dependency chain goes away.

You can also browse the dependencies with:

Code:
equery depgraph wpa_supplicant


Note: equery requires the gentoolkit

Probably because it asks for qt4 by default which requires X (I assume as dev-qt/qtcore is an X library).

Perhaps setting

Code:
net-wireless/wpa_supplicant -qt4


would do the trick and you would only be able to use its console aspect...
