IMO, the gentoo build system by itself cannot figure out the 
dependencies. The build creator has to specify the dependencies in the 
ebuild file. The build system can only install the specified 
dependencies automatically.

<OT>Also, what little knowledge I have of gentoo and sorcemage, I think 
sourcemage has a better build system.</OT>
