Default Blocking package is not actually installed

I'm trying to install a package that is being blocked by a package that
portage claims is not even installed:

catherine ~ # emerge -av =dev-util/gtk-doc-am-1.10-r1

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild N ] dev-util/gtk-doc-am-1.10-r1 395 kB
[blocks B ] dev-util/gtk-doc-am (is blocking
dev-util/gtk-doc-1.8-r2)

Total: 1 package (1 new, 1 block), Size of downloads: 395 kB

!!! Error: The above package list contains packages which cannot be
installed
!!! at the same time on the same system.

For more information about Blocked Packages, please refer to the
following
section of the Gentoo Linux x86 Handbook (architecture is irrelevant):

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?full=1#blocked

catherine ~ # emerge -pv dev-util/gtk-doc-am

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild N ] dev-util/gtk-doc-am-1.10-r1 395 kB
[blocks B ] dev-util/gtk-doc-am (is blocking
dev-util/gtk-doc-1.8-r2)

Total: 1 package (1 new, 1 block), Size of downloads: 395 kB

What should I do?

What I did was to unmerge dev-util/gtk-doc and that seemed to fix
things. You might want to look at a previous thread of a couple of
days ago which I started and was quite informative.

I unmerged gtk-doc and ran my command again. Now it wants to install
gtk-doc, but it's still blocked:

catherine ~ # emerge -av =gtk+-2.12.9-r2

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild N ] dev-util/gtk-doc-1.8-r2 USE="debug doc -emacs" 182 kB
[ebuild N ] dev-util/gtk-doc-am-1.10-r1 395 kB
[ebuild U ] x11-libs/gtk+-2.12.9-r2 [2.12.8] USE="X cups debug doc
jpeg tiff -vim-syntax -xinerama" 15,652 kB
[blocks B ] dev-util/gtk-doc-am (is blocking
dev-util/gtk-doc-1.8-r2)

Total: 3 packages (1 upgrade, 2 new, 1 block), Size of downloads: 16,229
kB

!!! Error: The above package list contains packages which cannot be
installed

It looks like you are trying to mix testing and stable packages. On my
amd64 setup, gtk+-2.12.9-r2 is ~amd64 but gtk-doc-1.8-r2 is amd64. If
that's the case, adding gtk-doc to package.keywords should resolve this.
