Blastwave's gaim package is built against a fairly recent version of
gnome. It shouldn't be a problem but if it is let me know.
Native Solaris gnome, on Solaris 8 or Solaris 9 might be a problem.
However, I don't see that as a big problem. (They can upgrade to Solaris
10 or they can use blastwave or they can roll their own.)
