Yeah, I tried the gcc30 and gcc31 packages (and of course, I installed
the libsigc++ and libicq2000 ports, and I mentioned previously that I
installed the iconv port), but it still wouldn't compile.

The icqv7-t site specifically mentions a FreeBSD port, but I haven't
actually *seen* it anywhere. Even the CVS tree seems to be out of date.

Oh well. I guess I'll just keep using micq for now.... I wish I had time
to study the APIs.... Maybe I'd be able to mutate micq into a transport

Hmm.... Maybe I could whip something simple together in Perl...
