I'm sorry to add the to amount of GAIM install questions here, but I'll try to make it brief. In the FAQ section in the GAIM site found at:
the second question asks if you can install without the dependencies. I don't know how to do any of the 3 suggestions. I'm particularly interested in the second one, but I'm not sure where the --with and the rest of those flags go as well as the ./configure. I appreciate anyone who can help. Thanks.
