To get your system ready to emerge gnome, it is recommended that you first set the gnome profile. To accomplish this, do the following:

#  eselect profile list

  [9]   funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/flavor/workstation
  [10]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/flavor/hardened
Currently available mix-ins profiles:

# eselect profile
