Plus, if you REALLY must have Gaim 0.78, you can download the source RPM
from gaim.sourceforge.net and run

rpmbuild --rebuild gaim-0.78-0.src.rpm

All the dependencies (if you're missing some devel packages) are easily
yum-able.  On FC1, gaim 0.78 built without any trouble at all.  Can't say
I like the decimation of preferences in this version, though.  I just
uninstalled it and went back to 0.77 ...
