For GTalk voice calls:

Kopete has old version of libjingle included into svn tree.

Problem is that google (again) changed their API and seems that 
actual libjingle code in kopete is incompatible with gmail web 
plugin (and also incompatible with new version). Also google devs 
made *.cpp files (audio output via mediastreamer) uncompilable in 
last libjingle version (this is really possible). So this must be 

I sent patches which we have in kopete svn repository for 
libjingle to google devs and all was included except one (which I 
need to fix). When that patch will be accepted into upstream 
libjingle I remove "modified old libjingle" from kopete svn and 
voice call will depends only on external up-to-date google 
package, which should work... I belive that there will be no more 
incompatible changes in upstream libjingle library.
