Problem with XFCE4 emerge


I am installing XFCE4 as per: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/xfce-config.xml

The first problem was cairo complaining about a required flag (svg), so I added it to /etc/portage/package.use (x11-libs/cairo svg).

When I try running emerge xfce4 again I get a "3 blocks" error message:

Code:
sys-libs/com_err ("sys-libs/com_err" is blocking sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.3-r1)
sys-libs/ss ("sys-libs/ss" is blocking sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.3-r1)
sys-fs/e2fsprogs-1.41 ("<sys-fs/e2fsprogs-1.41" is blocking sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.3-r1)
My details are as follows:

Code:
## emerge --info

As an impatient person, I decided to look around for an answer. I emerged e2fsprogs, which uninstalled comm_err and ss. Afterwords I tried emerging xfce4 again, with success as it is emerging right now.

Your blocker back in 2008 was really something, we had a lot of people that crashed their box with the emerge -C e2fsprogs.

Actually, if you had remove e2fsprogs without doing anything, on the next reboot, you would had a terrible crash + in bonus, your emerge would not work also, since wget was broken too.

I was going to uninstall, but gave me a "required by system" message so I changed my mind. Thankfully the reinstall fixed the issue. And I will remember that for next time.

Thanks for the response.
