I have it running on 4.99.32, but I can't get the mike to work - when
I try to dial out,  it complains that it cannot open the recording
device. The setup does not allow me to change the device from /dev/dsp
(which is not present on NetBSD); the sound output works; I could not
also get it to do the search for skype users - the search window stays
empty forever, never coming back; otherwise it logs me OK and
recognises my contacts and if they are online. I only had to install
suse100_libsigc++2 to get it working in the first place, the rest was
OK. This is the static version with oss of course, not the ALSA
