There were three issues with compiling /installing Gaim 2.0beta6 on Solaris
SPARC without root access.

First problem was well-documented in this forum, dealing with xmppconsole. 
Contrary to the post in the forum, I still have to manually comment out 
in the section "plugin_LTLIBRARIES" in the Makefile in ./gtk/plugins directory.

Second problem, the problem of linking eggtrayicons, was due to the fact that
the configure file couldn't find my X11 library.  I had to manually modify the
Makefile in ./gtk by adding "-lX11" in section "gaim$(EXEEXT):"

Third problem is the problem of the fact that gconf in gaim seems to  ignore
my "--prefix" flag in the ./configure command and trying to write gconf.xml
file in the /etc/goncf directory during the installation:
Could not make directory
Failed to write
Failed to open   This problem occurs when I type "make install."  The error
message was:
"/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/schemas/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/xmpp/%gconf.xm": No such file or directory

I have no solution for this problem.  I ignored the command but the end result
was gaim segfault on me when i try to run it

So, Solaris Experts, please look at it when u have a chance and let me know
if I can provide any more information.
