Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GNOME_SHELL_CFLAGS
and GNOME_SHELL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

[31;01m*[0m ERROR: gnome-base/gnome-shell-22.214.171.124 failed (configure phase):
Both net-misc/networkmanager and gnome-extra/nm-applet are now mandatory
I have to disagree.
For a quick and dirty test I hard-removed the checks for libnm-[gtk,glib,util] from the configure script and gnome-shell installed just fine.
I needed to install gnome-shell as a dependency to gdm, so I definitely can do without the networkmanager. As far as I could see, they only changed the dependency to libnm-gtk for mobile providers. (see https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-shell/commit/?id=8dd880d0c88f35466933e032b89c381efa5a4588 )
Therefore, the message at https://mail.gnome.org/archives/commits-list/2012-November/msg04131.html seems a little bit like overkill.
Would be nice if gentoo could further provide the option of not installing the networkmanager when installing gnome-shell.

Probably patch needs more updating, if you could look at it, that would be nice (I will attach it here)

can you try with this new patch instead?
It basically moves from the libnm-glib, libnm-util and libnm-gtk from the GNOME_SHELL dependencies and to the NETWORKMANAGER one.
