#1281: fix-linkage does not follow dependency chain

 I noticed on a highly broken system (libpng, libjpeg and icu broken) that
 cave fix-linkage does not follow the dependency chain.

 The following situation occurred:
 app-text/gtkspell was broken because my libpng was messed up
 x11-libs/cairo was also broken because of libpng

 Now fix-linkage tried to build gtkspell first although it also depends on
 Gtkspell failed to build because cairo was broken and fix-linkage failed.
 I had to first manually resolve cairo and then run fix-linkage again so
 make it work.
