I need to do a complete reinstall of xorg kde and kdm. I what to delete every file assosciated with these applications because vnc has really screwed somethign up and i dont know what.

Soo, I have done the following

Code:
emerge -Cav xorg-x11

for x in `equery list kde-base/`
> do
>     emerge -C --ask $x
> done

for x in `equery list kde-misc/`
> do
>     emerge -C --ask $x
> done

rm -Rvf ~/.kde*
rm -Rvf /usr/kde*
rm -Rvf /etc/X11


Is there anything I am missing... and when i remerge these packages how can i ensure that all configs are remerged/overridden?

-thanks

Code:
man emerge


--noconfmem
Causes portage to disregard merge records indicating that a con-
fig file inside of a CONFIG_PROTECT directory has been merged
already. Portage will normally merge those files only once to
prevent the user from dealing with the same config multiple
times. This flag will cause the file to always be merged.

As to whether you're missing anything, that depends on what you installed. But following that kind of a mongolian goat-screw, I personally would probably run several clean-up -related tasks:
dep -w
dep -E
emerge --depclean (I don't trust dep -d yet)
eclean-dist -df
