Centericq is now called centerim and is packaged in Debian.  So it 
shouldn't be any trouble to install and run (file a bug if it doesn't 
work).  I've not used it in literally years.

I'm still using Pebrot.  I didn't have any great difficulty starting it 
under Squeeze.  You have to install it as you would always, but it works 

It's worth noting that under Squeeze, I at least get a warning about an 
SSL socket function being deprecated.  It's no big deal at least for now, 
just do control-l to redraw the screen and you should be good to go.

I should probably investigate the needed function and send them a patch to 
make this warning go away.
