Q: I just upgraded Gaim and the MSN plugin will not load. Why?
-A: You did not compile with SSL support. As of protocol version 9, the MSN
-protocol requires the use of SSL, which gaim provides by either GnuTls or the
-combination of NSS and NSPR from the Mozilla project. Install one or both of
-these and recompile Gaim.

Q: The MSN plugin won't load, but I have Mozilla NSS!
A: Some distributions, including Slackware, install Mozilla NSS to a non-standard directory. The fix is
simple. Edit /etc/ld.so.conf and add /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4 (or whatever
-version you're using, but it's usually 1.4) to the file. Then re-run
-configure and recompile Gaim.

Mozilla 1.5 has a broken .pc file and does not install the necessary .h files, and so will not be detected.
