I also get this message sometimes, but I never consider it a problem.
I just add all the packages that would be broken also to the command line,
and that informs the constraints solver a bit more (and rebuilds some
things) and then works.
I've actually wished for a switch that just does this, but cut-n-paste the
packages it tells me about works fine.
