It should compile under [insert OS here]...but it DOESN'T.
Please, for those of us who use BeOS, Windows, etc., please give source code that will work under those operating systems. MICQ is posted on BeBits and says it should compile on BeOS. Well, the news is that it doesn't. MICQ is the only ICQ client I have found that is stable under the OS and is the only one I use. However, it complains that it requires libraries that are for Linux only. For example, it'll exit during the compilation and complain that it can't find the arpa/inet.h file. I am no programmer, but I have run into this problem once before, compiling one bit of source. There is no quick-fix for this. Grabbing those Linux libraries and headers won't work and will still fail trying to compile it. Please provide BeOS code that WILL compile, or at least provide a precomiled BeOS binary inside the package on BeBits. This is extremely frustrating.
