Here's some more instructions for some more applications....Comments are welcome...each of these are working here with this configuration, however, i can't guarantee FHS compliance.

GAIM - GTK based AIM/Yahoo/Jabber/MSN/ICQ client

Version: 0.11.0pre14

Note that you can also use the CVS version - this often solves the "Messenger Wars" where the messaging services block "unauthorized" clients.  The following instructions will help you download the CVS version of GAIM, and get it successfully compiled.  (Note:  You'll need the CVS client installed to make use f this)

(hit enter for password)
cvs -z3 -d ':pserver:anonymous at cvs.gaim.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gaim' checkout gaim
cvs -d ':pserver:anonymous at cvs.gaim.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gaim' logout
