That NM ebuild requires the new hal and dbus, which aren't in the tree
yet and which break a lot of other stuff.  We're trying to get that
stuff in the tree, and once its in, you could start messing with it.
But even to build NM right now will require dependencies that will break
your system.  So I strong advise against it.  You can track the progress
by getting ahold of us in #gentoo-desktop on
