I originally installed Java support following the Gentoo Java Guide's recommendation.
Code:
emerge virtual/jdk

I ended up needing the Oracle Java 7 package and I was able to install it and configure it as the default system-vm, but now I can't seem to remove the Icedtea Java files.

I tried emerge --unmerge virtual/jdk and emerge --unmerge virtual/jre but when I try to run emerge --depclean it keeps saying those packages need to pull in dependencies and asks me to run emerge --update --newuse --deep --with-bdeps=y @world at which time Icedtea is pulled back in.

How can I rid all references to Icedtea and only use the Oracle Java 7 VM?

/etc/portage/make.conf
Code:
USE="mmx sse sse2 ssse3 X -gtk -gnome -qt4 -kde"


/etc/portage/package.use
Code:
app-crypt/pinentry gtk
app-office/libreoffice gtk
app-text/acroread nsplugin
dev-java/oracle-jdk-bin alsa nsplugin
dev-libs/libxml2 python
media-gfx/imagemagick png
media-libs/imlib2 png
media-libs/libpng apng
media-libs/xine-lib xvmc
media-video/nvidia-settings gtk
media-video/vlc alsa gnome qt4 matroska mp3 mpeg opengl png truetype
net-p2p/transmission gtk
sys-fs/udev gudev keymap
sys-libs/zlib minizip

x11-libs/cairo xcb

Maybe a better question to ask is this...

I tried "emerge --unmerge icedtea-bin" followed by "emerge --depclean" which says virtual/jdk needs to pull in missing dependencies and to run the command "emerge --update --newuse --deep --with-bdeps=y @world"

I also tried:

emerge --unmerge virtual/jre
emerge --unmerge virtual/jdk

followed by emerge --depclean with no luck. I can't seem to remove the reference to virtual/jre and virtual/jdk which exist somewhere in my portage tree.

Code:
equery d virtual/jre


Will tell you who need it, because as long as anyone need it, it will get pull back as dependency when updating world
