The problem happens on Gentoo systems of a certain age and older. It
happened here and not on a newer install on another box. I immediately
traced it to somewhere in the docbook suite. Personally, what I did was
I removed everything docbook, essentially, figuring that something was

# emerge --unmerge docbook-sgml-utils docbook-xml-simple-dtd
docbook-xml-dtd docbook-sgml-dtd sgml-common SGMLSpm docbook-sgml
docbook-dsssl-stylesheets build-docbook-catalog

This removed all versions of these packages, obviously. At this point,
esound built because it noticed the lack of docbook and it's
documentation went together in a different fashion, which is where the
ebuild was getting hung up. However, things will be needing docbook
eventually, so this is what I ended up doing:

# emerge build-docbook-catalog docbook-sgml

This installed 14 packages for me, all relating to docbook. I redid the
emerge on esound and it was also successful. So all I really did was
clean up docbook. When I update, I use "emerge -uD world" so if I'm
missing something with docbook in the future, then it'll get corrected
as needed.

I sat on this issue for a while, too. I don't like to go in and do
sizable sandblasting like this if I don't have to but when it comes to
slotted packages like parts of docbook, sometimes it's necessary as
demonstrated in this case.

Hope that works for you.
