I think he's asking about the ebuild. The version he wants is not in portage.
If you have the package *already* installed and want to remerge it, there's a
local copy of the ebuild in
copy it from there to your local overlay and remerge as normal.
If you unmerged the package already, then the ebuild is gone. Maybe you have a
backup. There's also an svn attic somewhere where everything that was ever in
portage is stored. I don;t know where it is, but Google does. Search for it.
