Gabber barfs on install

I know this is an ugly post, but I'm going mad trying to fix this. When running $ make to build Gabber, the following error occurs. I think that it might be because there are missing gal-devel headers. Anyway, I can see some libgal libraries in /usr/local/lib, and I have cp'd them to /usr/lib so that gnome-config can find them.. (yukky hacky-ness!). But now I'm really stuck..

here's the make output:

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/chris/downloads/gabber/gabber-0.8.7/src'

any help would really be appreciated

try to explicitly include the libs.

run configure again with:

CPPFLAGS="-L<Path/to/gal/libs>" configure

hope this helps

alteratively try using Gaim. i used to use gabber, but found the network so utterly unreliable. you should be able to use all the accounts you want on Gaim just the same, i switched over a while back, and wouldn't go back to gabber now.

Well I have just tried out Gaim and I like it.. It manages all my accounts without any complaints and the Gnome UI seems as familiar and lightweight as ever.

thanks, Chris,
Chris !
