Actually, believe it or not, it is.  The "right" way to install all of the
basic GNOME stuff is to merge gnome-base/gnome-1.2.4-r1.ebuild first, then all
of its dependencies.

For kde, merge kde-base/kde-2.0.1, and then all its runtime dependencies.  Soon,
we'll have recursive builds and packages working, and these kinds of things will
resolve themselves.
