System-wide GNOME menus are stored in /usr/share/gnome/apps.  The format
is .desktop, transparent and open to inspection.

User GNOME menus are stored in ~/.gnome/apps/

Debian menus are stored in /usr/lib/menu

'apt-cache search gdict' gives 
gnome-utils - Gnome Utilities (gtt, gsearchtool, and more)
gdict - small GTK app to retrieve definitions from MIT's dictionary

gnome-utils is in stable/testing/unstable, gdict is in stable.

On my system the gdict applet is located at Applet->Utility->GDict

The relevant menu file is usr/share/applets/Utility/gdict.desktop
