GAIM remains the same

Thank you for everyone that sent me help
for my Gaim problem. I'm still in the middle
of trying to figure out why I can't for the life
of me configure it just the way I want. What's
even more frustrating, it seems that:
o GAIM 0.64 configures fine out of the box with
the minimal flag of --prefix=/usr/freeware including
perl, GTK, X session management, plugin, and all
the protocol plugins. There is some problem with
libtool that parses something wrong which I got
around the first time I compiled it. It's still the
version that I have running. Nice graphics, peppy,
doesn't like that MSN protocol, but at least it loads
it and gives and error.
o GAIM 0.71 doesn't configure the way I want. --disable-perl
solves a -S -c vs. -o GCC 3.3 warning that gets thrown as
and error deep in some plugin directory, but rather than trying
to figure out the flagging overrides, I just booted on it.
The other problem, it compiles and launches fine, but the
MSN protocol either dynamic or static gives an error that
it's "not loaded". Every other protocol works fine, but
for the life of me, I can't get the SSL libs to configure
correctly using gnutls, mozilla, mozilla-firebird or any
other of the directories or libs.
o GAIM 0.70 configures with the plugins out of the box, but
fails with the same
gcc: cannot specify -o with -c or -S and multiple compilations
which I can avoide with --disable-perl.
Gonna keep working backwards until I can figure out how to get
a new enough msn protocol plugin to work with an old enough
default GAIM tarball that can load it.....
