emerge uavd world blocked package


i'm getting these packages as blocked when attempting to do: emerge -uavD world

Since they are KDE related i don't want to unmerge these packages unless there is no other way offcourse, but that's why i'm asking here. Is there some other way? How do i exclude the packages from the install?

These are the troublesome packages:

[blocks B     ] <kde-base/kdesktop-3.5.6-r1 (is blocking kde-base/kdebase-kioslaves-3.5.7-r1)
[blocks B     ] <=kde-base/kmail-3.5.6-r1 (is blocking kde-base/libkdepim-3.5.7-r1)
[blocks B     ] kde-base/ksync (is blocking kde-base/kdelibs-3.5.7-r2)
[blocks B     ] =app-dicts/aspell-en-0.5* (is blocking app-text/aspell-0.60.5)

Unmerging them won't hurt. Emerge them again after your world is updated. In fact newer versions of those packages will probably show up if you type emerge -Duvp world after removing them. Either way, just write down the packages you unmerge and emerge tham after you're done.
