If you see an error like this:

* In order to avoid breakage of link level dependencies, one or more
 * packages will not be removed. This can be solved by rebuilding the
 * packages that pulled them in.
 * 
 *   dev-lang/python-2.6.6-r2 pulled in by:
 *     app-emulation/virtualbox-bin-4.0.4 needs libpython2.6.so.1.0

You can do one of two actions:

## emerge -C =dev-lang/python-2.6.6-r2; revdep-rebuild

## emerge -C virtualbox-bin; emerge -ac; emerge virtualbox-bin
