I ran the licq package from FreeBSD through the port2pkg tool with mixed
success. The package builds OK, but so far I've noticed two problems:

1) licq seems unable to create the .licq directory the first time it's
run, and so the configuration needs to be installed manually.

2) Every contact in the contact list causes licq to keep a file open,
hitting the per-user file limit pretty quickly. I don't know why this
doesn't cause a problem on FreeBSD, though. maybe there's just a higher
file limit.

Also, the dependencies probably aren't anywhere near right. It's likely to
need a little work by someone with a bit more time and experience of the
package system.

The package is at if
anyone's interested.

Should I send a PR, or would somebody like to give it the once over and
then PR it themselves?

(BTW I'm building on NetBSD 1.4/i386, in case it makes any difference to
