Gaim cvs now requires libao and libaudiofile, and their header files. If
you don't get sound, run gaim -d and look for the line that says what
output driver you are using. If that doesn't match what it should be,
create a file called ~/.libao, and put "default-driver=esd" in the file.
Substitute esd with arts or alsa if that's what you are using.
