 After having a short glance at the details provided about the
 [http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoolkit.xml gentoolkit], I have to say
 that this looks really good. And the "revdep-rebuild" would indeed suited
 this situation perfect:

 broken as a result of an upgrade of a package they depend on. It can

 package does not work anymore with the currently installed dependencies,
