Gaim CVS and Bonjour using Avahi

So you want to play around with Gaim 2.0beta1 or CVS, you definately want the Bonjour/RendezVous protocol plugin to be able to IM with your buddies on your local LAN, but you haven't got Howl on your system as you believe Avahi is the way to go (good boy :-))?

Just apply this little patch. It's against current anoncvs from sf.net. You need to build avahi with avahi-compat-howl support.

You read my mind. I even submitted a feature request on gaim's feature request page. Why don't you submit the patch into their cvs?
eikke my hero !

Don't use the compat layer, it wont be around forever.

I know... It's already unmaintained now ;)
I didnt want to rewrite the Bonjour protocol plugin though. That's up to the Gaim guys I guess.
