Smile voicechat/voip support which client?especially google chat(gmail account)

I need a voice chat client that works on Debian Sid/Ubuntu.I need Google chat(gmail) support especially if possible.

Also,how is Skype?will it have qt-static version?Does it have problems with pulseaudio?(using pulseaudio on gutsy).

Ekiga(gnomemeeting)-I would rather prefer Ekiga as it is native GTK client.
I have registered a SIP account for ekiga.
Can I chat with my relative using Ekiga?He is using Windows XP though which client can he use when I use Ekiga?

GYACHI seems stagnating/buggy now.

Please guide me!I am new to these voip voice chat thing
