You're gonna have to download the cvs of the gtk2 version.

cvs login
press enter when the login prompt comes up.

cvs -z3 co -r gtk2 sylpheed-claws

Now go into the sylpheed-claws directory and type './'

If it doesn't find all the libs then you can either disable the dependent plugin / feature, or you can install the libs and rerun ./configure.

When that's all done type 'make', then su into root, and then a 'make install' should get it there for ya.
