I believe I've answered my own question.  The pgadmin3-1.2.2.ebuild contains the following 3 lines that are not in the pgadmin3-1.4.3.ebuild:

dodir /usr/share/applnk/Development
cp ${S}/pkg/pgadmin3.desktop ${D}/usr/share/applnk/Development/pgadmin3.desktop
chmod 644 ${D}/usr/share/applnk/Development/pgadmin3.desktop

The applnk dir is scanned for additional .desktop files to explicitly include based on the file system hierarchy, see the following:

This method of categorizing .desktop (placing them in the /applnk directory) entries been deprecated in favor of the Categories line.

I hope this has cleared up any confusion.

I guess I'm confused about how it was correctly placed on my 2.14 installation.  There must be some configuration file that explicitly placed pgadmin3.dekstop in the right

Any ideas?
