Any clues to why gkrellm keeps teeter-totting? When I emerge world one day it upgrades to 2.2.4. The next day it downgrades it to 2.1.28-r1.

You should give a try to the -t option of emerge (tree) which hopefully shows what depends on the older version, then if that thing is not needed, unmerge that, or if that's needed mask the new gkrellm.
HTH.

No joy.

Code:

fb$ emerge -pD --tree gkrellm

These are the packages that I would merge, in reverse order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild   R   ] app-admin/gkrellm-2.2.4 


Same with =app-admin/gkrellm-2.1.28-r1. Is there something else I need to use to display the dependencies?[/code]

You can do several things:
0. when you have the new gkrellm installed, try:
Code:
emerge -uDvatN world
hopefully, this will show what depends on the old version.
1. install gentoolkit (if you don't have it installed), check the location of the qpkg script (because it's somehow deprecated now), read man qpkg -> you can find what depends on your system on which gkrellm version.
2. get unclepine, read the docs, then figure out what depends on the old gkrellm.
3. and not least check the bugzilla, and fill a new bug report if needed.

I found it was gkrellm-seti, one of the plugins.

How do you look for dependencies the other way? That is, for packages that depend on a given package. That might have been the easier solution in the first place.

Answering my own question:

Code:
  equery d gkrellm
