Question Cannot emerge anything!

emerge links
error circular dependencies
sys-devel/gcc-4.5.3-r1::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge depends on

Note that circular dependencies can often be avioded by temporary disabling USE flags, that trigger optional dependencies.

I haven't set up any USE flags. Thery are important, aren't they?

Nevertheless might it be not too late? Or I've the 3rd time to compile the handbook again?

Here is my /etc/make.conf

CFLAGS="-O2 -pipe -march=amdfam10"
USE="-kde -dvd -cdr -gpm gcc glibc X gnome gtk"

-gpm gcc glibc appeared after install.
