Have you checked what gnome1-dirs is for?  Have you checked its dependancies?
It depends on nothing except gnome-dirs.  It is only used to handle the
shared directory share/gnome/apps/Games, where dopewars installs a file.  If
you install gnome later, you will have the icon in the menu.  I don' see how
it hurts.  Check dopewars/PLIST cvs log for more information.
