here's the error from apt-get install jabber-transport:

 jabber-transport: Depends: libetherx1 but it is not going to be installed
                    Depends: libpth12 but it is not installable

the error boils down to an obsolete dependency on libpth12. :)

libpth12 is no longer available in woody.  libpth13 is.  i ftp'ed into the
archives and checked. :)  and yeah, i have unstable in sources.list.  

have you run apt-get dist-upgrade on your machine lately?  :)  betcha
jabber packages break when you do. :) :)
