I don't think gaim is made to be skinnable.
What you *can* do is change the gtk theme that it uses.
This will affect the icons, tint of windows, fonts, and look of the widgets.
As for how to do that in an environment other than XFCE or GNOME, I do not know, but
I suspect it's somewhere within /etc/gtk/ ... possibly one of the many gtkrc files, however I have no experience in editing those preferences.
