It's just my opinion only, but I don't feel this is the right fix.

Pretending the problem doesn't exist just can't be the right thing
to do.

Seemed to me, the patch that was contributed was enough. And even
if that one doesn't work, how hard could it be to fix this issue?
It seemed trivial.

Additionally there is plenty of precedent in the book to include a
message on the GAIM page to simply just say "There are known issues
with linking GAIM into the NAS build. BLFS is working on a solution
to the problem."
