Does anyone here know why when you install cups 1.1.23 os gentoo, it'll want to install X as well.

Also do you know how to get it not to do this, I have already -X -X11 -x11 -xorg in my make conf, any other ideas?

Well I've found that xpdf is now a dependancy in the cups ebuild, and xpdf needs all the X stuff, so i'm currently trying to remove xpdf from the list of dependancies to see if it'll install without X.

Unneeded large dependencies in gentoo. How ironic...

Shouldn't it use Ghostscript?

I've sotred it out by adding -motif to my use flags, since cups needed xpdf, and with the +motif flag on xpdf all the X stuff installed, so by using -motif it seems to be working without installing X.
