I've installed icedtea on my laptop but portage wants to also install icedtea-bin. Is this necessary?

Hard to say without some dependency info. Try to run
Code:
emerge -pt <whatever other arguments you used before>

to see what package wants to draw in icedtea-bin.

# eselect java-vm list
Available Java Virtual Machines:
[1] icedtea-6 system-vm

# emerge -pvDuNt world
[nomerge ] [masked java app]
[nomerge ] virtual/jre-1.6.0-r1:1.6
[nomerge ] virtual/jdk-1.6.0-r2:1.6
[ebuild N ] dev-java/icedtea-bin-6.1.12.7:6 USE="X alsa cups nsplugin -cjk -doc -examples -source" 0 kB
[ebuild N ] media-libs/jpeg-6b-r9:62 0 kB

Why doesn't the installed dev-java/icedtea-6.1.12.7 satisfy the app's java dep? The app's ebuild says:

DEPEND=">=virtual/jre-1.6"

Is this normal behavior? I can't imagine that I would need both.

It seems that you need a working jdk to bootstrap a java source distro, according to this:

Ever thought about simply using oracle-jdk-bin or icedtea-bin?

Portage has already compiled and installed icedtea so I don't know why it wants to install icedtea-bin.

In that case you can shut up portage by using an entry into the package.provided file, see
Code:
man portage

Sure but there must be a "right" way to do this.

That dependency is most probably there for a reason, and just re-posting your question won't get you the 'right' answer either. I'd browse the bug database if I were you, maybe patch the ebuild and submit it to bugzilla.
