Default Blocks with xz-utils lzma-utils

I'm trying to get KDE 4 where I can use it so I used the layman to get
the latest. Anyway, I seem to have ran into a Block, may not be related
to KDE4 tho, that I just can't make sense of. This is the error I get:

[blocks b ] kde-base/kde-meta:4.3[-kdeprefix]
("kde-base/kde-meta:4.3[-kdeprefix]" is blocking kde-base/kde-meta-9999)
[blocks B ] app-arch/lzma-utils ("app-arch/lzma-utils" is blocking
[blocks B ] app-arch/xz-utils ("app-arch/xz-utils" is blocking

Total: 278 packages (17 upgrades, 19 new, 242 in new slots, 248
uninstalls), Size of downloads: 240,422 kB

Conflict: 511 blocks (2 unsatisfied)
Portage tree and overlays:
[0] /usr/portage
[1] /usr/local/portage/layman/kde

* Error: The above package list contains packages which cannot be

I didn't post the whole thing but the part about the Blocks with a
capital B. I have unmerged both lzma-utils and xz-utils but I still get
this error. How can they block it when they are not installed yet? I'm
missing something here. I just don't see it.

I found a thread on the forums and did what it said but I still get
this. It said to unmerge xz-utils which I did. Then I unmerged
lzma-utils for good measure.

Someone tell me the trick to this? Thanks.
