[Gentoo] problem emerging xine-lib-1.0.1-r3

First off, i apologize if this isn't where this question should go, or if this an RTFM thing, but it sounded like a gentoo-specific issue.

I've had this issue since about 2005.0. One of the dependencies for the full blown kde-3.4 is xine-lib-1.0.1-r3. However, when it does get to this and starts to emerge, or if I emerge it alone, i come up with this

!!! Problem in media-libs/xine-lib-1.0.1-r3 dependencies.
!!! "Specific key requires and operator (media-libs/xine-lib-1.0.1-r3) (try adding an '=')" exceptions
i realize it says to add an =, but where? Is this something an average joe is supposed to add? I tried other xine-libs and got the same issue. Even if one of the other xine-libs worked it wouldn't help since kde wants 1.0.1-r3.

What you loose without it seems to be media-related things like amarok and the whole kdemultimedia build.
I can live without it for now, but i'd like to find out whats going on, if its just me (though i've reinstalled gentoo completely with the same result)

A completely different question is i downloaded xine from the sourceforge page and its not recognized as a gzip file even though its xine-lib-1.0.1-r3.tar.gz. I'm investigating this one right now. Even so would emerge honor it and exclude that dependency.

It seems to be just me with this problem, as i've not seen anything on google or Linuxquestions

thanks for listening to my issue

This only happens when specify a build. If you want xine-lib-1.0.1-r3 then you have to write this:

emerge =media-libs/xine-lib-1.0.1-r3
