Check the programs on that list to make sure you don't need any of them, and then select yes. That will get rid of gaim and all of it's dependencies.
After that, do this as a regular user:
rm -rf $HOME/.gaim
Then, do this:
emerge -av gaim
That will reinstall gaim and you will have to set it up from scratch. Alternatively, you could just delete your .gaim folder from your home directory, and that will reset it and allow you to start fresh. You shouldn't have to reinstall it, but you can if it makes you feel better.
