Well, I went to apt-get.org and found a place to get Licq as a .deb, and it
works like a charm, straight outta the box.  I still wouldn't mind knowing

Dunno if this solution has any relevance to anyone, but I thought I'd post
it just in case anybody lurking (or reading the archives) was wondering.
