Thing is, when the app you want depends on a different version of
libc6, it's a bit awkward...

Got gaim to compile eventually, but it doesn't work properly: with a
new user, it waits forever trying to download the buddy list - which
doesn't exist yet of course; with an existing user, it says "You are
not logged on with a protocol that allows you to chat"... guess their
new MSN protocol needs a bit more work yet.
