Gaim 2.0.0. beta 4: libdbus-glib error


Just thought I'd take a shot at compiling Gaim 2.0.0beta4 on my nice, shiny new Slackware 11.0 box =).

Anyway, the error given is:
/bin/sh ../../../libtool --silent --tag=CC --mode=link gcc  -g -g -O2   -o -rpath /usr/local/lib/gaim -module -avoid-version add_buddy_dialog.lo assoc-buddy.lo gevolution.lo gevo-util.lo new_person_dialog.lo eds-utils.lo -pthread -ledata-book-1.2 -lebook-1.2 -lgnome-2 -lpopt -ledataserver-1.2 -lgnomevfs-2 -lgobject-2.0 -lxml2 -lz -lgconf-2 -lbonobo-2 -lbonobo-activation -lORBit-2 -lm -lgmodule-2.0 -ldl -lgthread-2.0 -lglib-2.0   -lgtk-x11-2.0 -lgdk-x11-2.0 -latk-1.0 -lgdk_pixbuf-2.0 -lm -lpangocairo-1.0 -lpango-1.0 -lcairo -lgobject-2.0 -lgmodule-2.0 -ldl -lglib-2.0   -lnsl -lresolv

I'm not quite sure what this is, dbus is installed, AFAIK (the frgnome stable version, to be precise).

root@riv-cheron:/etc/samba# slapt-get --search dbus
dbus-0.62-i486-2frg [inst=no]: dbus (Message Bus System)
dbus-sharp-0.62-i486-1frg [inst=no]: dbus-sharp (D-BUS Mono Bindings)
dbus-0.93-i486-1frg [inst=yes]: dbus (Message bus system)
Do I need some sort of dbus-dev package or something?

you need to install d-bus... It is not installed with slackware.

Strange, I have Slackware 11.0 installed here and compiled Gaim 2.0.0beta4 without any problems and sure has no dbus installed here. I build a slackpack with it, you can try my build if you want...
