do you have the the right .ebuild file on your computer. the ebuild you are looking for should be at /usr/portage/net-im/gaim/gaim-1.0.1.ebuild. if this file doesn't exist then you can't just simply emerge it. to get this file just do a simple emerge sync to update your /usr/portage tree. if you do have it just tell emerge to specifically emerge this one, and not emerge the older version.
i also think that gaim 1.0.1 is masked in portage (ie its still being tested, so if you had a cron job that updated the system, you would not get unstable packages on perhaps a server or sumsuch) add a line to your /etc/portgae/packages.keywords file (you might have to create it) that reads
the first part is pretty simple, the package name and class, the next part is the keywork, the tilda (~) means testing generaly, this way you can select whitch packages you use more advanced versions for. the x86 shoudl be your processor arch (im just assuming b/c its so common)
post back with your results (btw, probably best to run an emerge sync after adding this lin and saving)
