This seems very strange to me and google didn't shed any light on it.
Code:

[ebuild     U  ] x11-misc/lightdm-gtk-greeter-2.0.5-r1 [2.0.1-r1] USE="-branding*"
[ebuild  N     ]  xfce-base/exo-0.12.0
[ebuild  N     ]   xfce-base/libxfce4ui-4.13.4  USE="startup-notification -debug -glade -introspection -vala"
[ebuild  N     ]    xfce-base/xfconf-4.12.1  USE="-debug -perl"
[ebuild  N     ]     xfce-base/libxfce4util-4.13.1  USE="-introspection"

add -t to find out what is pulling it in

That output is indented, so he is already using -t. According to ebuild, xfce-base/exo is now in $DEPEND. I cannot say why that is the case.

look at geki's Overlay - there's a Version without this dependency.

working fine here :D

Thanks for your answers. At first I was surprised that a DM would depend on a DE and wondered if it was going the way of GDM but what really kept me from it was the concern that it may mess with some of my desktop settings.

Until I understand why it's depending on exo I'll use the one at geki's overlay - thanks CooSee

Could LightDM GTK+ Greeter bug report #1635816 have something to do with it?:

AFAIS the exo-csource dependency is required only in maintainer-mode[0]. Would it be possible to update configure.ac[1], so that it is required conditionally on maintainer-mode being enabled?

That would be great and thank you in advance.

Thank you! I have an understanding of it after googling maintainer-mode and reading https://flameeyes.blog/2008/06/13/maintaner-mode/
It's a shame the bug is 2 years old. On the off chance it may affect my desktop I'll go with geki's ebuild.

Edit: geki's ebuild calls for eapi 7 and doesn't build for me so I'm happy to say that the Gentoo ebuild pulling in the xfce libs didn't mess with my desktop.
Thanks again everyone.
