I've been fighting this for two days now:

catherine ~ # emerge -uD world
Calculating dependencies... done!

!!! Multiple package instances within a single package slot have been
!!! into the dependency graph, resulting in a slot conflict:


('installed', '/', 'app-text/poppler-0.10.3', 'nomerge') pulled in by
~app-text/poppler-0.10.3 required by ('installed', '/',
'app-text/poppler-bindings-0.10.3', 'nomerge')
(and 4 more)

('ebuild', '/', 'app-text/poppler-0.6.3-r1', 'merge') pulled in by
app-text/poppler required by world
>=app-text/poppler-0.6.1 required by ('installed', '/',
'kde-base/kdegraphics-3.5.9', 'nomerge')
>=app-text/poppler-0.4.3-r1 required by ('installed', '/',
'net-print/cups-1.3.9-r1', 'nomerge')
(and 1 more)

It may be possible to solve this problem by using package.mask to
prevent one of those packages from being selected. However, it is also
possible that conflicting dependencies exist such that they are
impossible to satisfy simultaneously. If such a conflict exists in the
dependencies of two different packages, then those packages can not be
installed simultaneously.

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page
or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.

I need poppler-0.10.3 to get around the qt circular dependency problem.
Lower versions of poppler and poppler-bindings are not installed:

catherine ~ # emerge -pvC poppler poppler-bindings

>>> These are the packages that would be unmerged:

selected: 0.10.3
protected: none
omitted: none

selected: 0.10.3
protected: none
omitted: none

>>> 'Selected' packages are slated for removal.
>>> 'Protected' and 'omitted' packages will not be removed.

I've tried every trick I can think of to get around this and nothing has
worked. Please help me.

Why have you got poppler in world?
