gnome-sudo is a front-end for sudo. I'm not too familiar with gnome, so if the gnome herd could take a look at this, I'd appreciate it. I've been using gnome-sudo for a few months without problems.

This is an old gnome 1 package that hasn't been touched since 2001. Not sure where you got the deps for the ebuild, or how you have been using it for a few months and didn't notice :-/ We already have gtk2 frontends for su and sudo (gksu package)
What gtk2 frontends for sudo are in portage? I've looked at gksu and it does not have sudo support.
Nevermind me. I see there is a symlink from gksu to gksudo, but theres nothing in the man page about it.
