GNUmail emerge and multiple versions within a single package

Matthias Teege-4
Moin,

I try to setup gnumail on my gentoo system with the overlay
files [1]. The emerge gnumail gives me an error:

% emerge gnumail
Calculating dependencies |
!!! Multiple versions within a single package slot have been
!!! pulled into the dependency graph:

('ebuild', '/', 'gnustep-base/gnustep-gui-0.10.3', 'merge') pulled in by
   ('ebuild', '/', 'gnustep-base/gnustep-back-art-0.10.3', 'merge')

('ebuild', '/', 'gnustep-base/gnustep-gui-0.12.0', 'merge') pulled in by
   ('ebuild', '/', 'gnustep-base/mknfonts-0.5', 'merge')

mask the old package doesnt solve the problem.

% cat /etc/portage/package.mask
=gnustep-base/gnustep-gui-0.10.3

% emerge gnumail
Calculating dependencies /
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "~gnustep-base/gnustep-gui-0.10.3" have  
been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your  
request:
- gnustep-base/gnustep-gui-0.10.3 (masked by: package.mask)

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or
refer to the Gentoo Handbook.
(dependency required by "gnustep-base/gnustep-back-art-0.10.3" [ebuild])

How do I fix this?

Many thanks
Matthias

The latest gnumail release (and also basically all non-Etoile stuff) has
been moved from the overlay to the main tree; look here:

http://overlays.gentoo.org/proj/gnustep/browser/overlay

It does exist in the "prefix-overlay" :

http://overlays.gentoo.org/proj/gnustep/browser/prefix-overlay

which I have never used.

If you are using the prefix-overlay, that may explain the problem.  

Otherwise, two ideas:

1)  Manually upgrade gnustep-back-art (there may be a Portage bug in
handling virtuals that are both old- and new-style, see bug #190256)

2)  Post here your "emerge --info"
