Joel,

I think what you might want is:
emerge calltree
emerge graphviz

Then use calltree to output "dot" format which you can then render using
graphviz (which takes "dot" format).

Hopefully your program isn't too big because graphviz can use up a lot
of memory pretty quickly as you dependency graph grows.
