Not sure on the Gentoo specifics; basically, any app that depends on a
GNOME1 package is, well, GNOME1.  I've no clue how Gentoo names
packages, so I can't help sort that out too well; if it's like most
other distros, GNOME1 packages will often be called gnome-foo, and the
GNOME2 version will be gnome-foo2.

You can also look at glib (and, to a lesser extend, gtk) dependencies
for GNOME apps.
