I'd like 2 know all packages (i.e not installed only) that may depend on a specific one, full portage tree wise?
Maybe including installed eselect/layman overlays...
Thks 4 ur attention.

gentoolkit comes with a program called equery that might help here...

for installed packages there is
Code:
equery depends packagename
if you want to check all packages (and not just the installed ones), it's
Code:
equery depends -a packagename


Code:
gazelle ~ # equery depends portage
 * These packages depend on portage:
app-admin/haskell-updater-1.2.10 (>=sys-apps/portage-2.1.6)
app-admin/perl-cleaner-2.25 (sys-apps/portage)
app-portage/gentoolkit-0.4.2-r1 (sys-apps/portage[python_targets_pypy(-)?,python_targets_python2_7(-)?,python_targets_python3_4(-)?,python_targets_python3_5(-)?,python_targets_python3_6(-)?,python_targets_python3_7(-)?,-python_single_target_pypy(-),-python_single_target_python2_7(-),-python_single_target_python3_4(-),-python_single_target_python3_5(-),-python_single_target_python3_6(-),-python_single_target_python3_7(-)])
sys-devel/crossdev-20171230 (>=sys-apps/portage-2.1)
virtual/package-manager-1 (sys-apps/portage)
