hi all, 

in chat/gaim/Makefile there is a line 
CONFIGURE_ARGS+=	--disable-screensaver
which disables gaim's ability to determine keyboard and mouse activity (used to
calculate idleness).  therefore, when a make install is run, gaim is compiled
without that option.

if this line is removed, the configure script of gaim simply looks for the
xscreensaver libs and include the functionality if it finds them.

i was wondering: is there a reason this line is in the makefile?  if not, could
someone remove it, (or at least comment it out)?
