I have not used the Arch Linux and also any other system which is having package management it does not uses, i would suggest that you better find all the dependencies for Gnome 2 and then download it on the system.

I was searching for the Desktop Environment which allow me to do the things done with minimal fuss. Then i have ordered the Cinnamon which was something same to older Gnome 2 Desktop Environment excels, so due to which i have worked for me, it is been released for Linux Mint 10, Linux Mint 11 and LMDE. If you search for It is possible to Roll Back Arch Linux to where Gnome 2 is available then you will be able to get some sort of the information about it and also you can search for Arch Linux Offline Installation of Packages then you will be come across with the method to install it.
