* Depclean may break link level dependencies. Thus, it is
* recommended to use a tool such as `revdep-rebuild` (from
* app-portage/gentoolkit) in order to detect such breakage.
*
* Always study the list of packages to be cleaned for any obvious
* mistakes. Packages that are part of the world set will always
* be kept. They can be manually added to this set with
* `emerge --noreplace <atom>`. Packages that are listed in
* package.provided (see portage(5)) will be removed by
* depclean, even if they are part of the world set.
*
* As a safety measure, depclean will not remove any packages
* unless *all* required dependencies have been resolved. As a
* consequence, it is often necessary to run `emerge --update
* --newuse --deep @world` prior to depclean.

Calculating dependencies... done!
>>> Calculating removal order...


!!! 'sys-apps/less' (virtual/pager) is part of your system profile.
!!! Unmerging it may be damaging to your system.


>>> Waiting 10 seconds before starting...
>>> (Control-C to abort)...
Press Ctrl-C to Stop in: 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

sys-apps/less
selected: 444
protected: none
omitted: none

All selected packages: sys-apps/less-444

>>> 'Selected' packages are slated for removal.
>>> 'Protected' and 'omitted' packages will not be removed.
>>> Unmerging in: 5 4 3

I didn't change anything on my side so I belive something has changed recently (last 2 days) in portage dependencies.
Do I need to add "less" to the world set?
Shouldn't it be the part of the basic system programs?

Guess you're running stable, since this change has been done a long time ago in ~x86/~x64. So, yes, if you want to keep less, you'd need to add it manually or choose another option(more, most, etc).

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads in favor of depclean wants to uninstall 'less' and --depclean wants to remove nano!
