Sorry to ask another GAIM question

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.

go to the directory you extracted the gaim source to and type
./configure --with-disable-plugins or watever option you want
type ./configure --help to see a list of the options

like stated above, do ./configure --flags

the flags will tell the configure script how the program will be built (kind of like selecting options in a custom install versus a typical install in windows executable installs)

after the ./configure script finishes, do
su (enter root password)
make install
