this is a known issue. We had to use the 'before *' dependency instead 
of the expected 'before net' as 'before net' was not working correctly 
on our Gentoo development machines. It is possible that users might also 
be affected by this problem so we kept the 'before *'.

The use of 'before *' generates a warning but at least it should work on 
all Gentoo systems.
