I have been stripping my system down -- removing gnome and its dependencies.

However, in the process of various updates, removals, etc., the system reports preserved libs that are not part of any existing installed ebuild.

If I try "emerge @preserved-rebuild", portage wants to rebuild the packages that I have deleted.

Is there a simple and safe way to get rid of these files?
