please note that setting WANT_AUTOMAKE before inherit autotools would spare you the need to add a buggy depend in DEPEND.
Comment 2 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2008-10-11 18:38:20 UTC
actually this project is dead and upstream dev moved to gossip.

Seen on

 [28/10/05] - Gnome Jabber a dead project!
Gnome Jabber has not been developed for some time now and since I moved over to work on Gossip and am now one of two maintainers on the project I am dropping any support for Gnome Jabber.

The page will still remain here for people to use it they want to and there is a windows version (which was in beta stages when I stopped working on it) to download and try if you want.

Thanks for all the support people gave on this project! 


shall we pass this over to treecleaners ?

Use gossip or a newer jabber client, gnome-jabber is dead
