      audio/xmms-imms is marked as broken, and schedulded for deletion.
I had to solve three problems :

       *  /usr/local/lib/libgthread12.so.3: undefined reference to

       I've googled and have seen other threads concerning this issue,
       but the only solution I found don't seem to work for me.

       This post
       points out nvidia-driver, which I currently have. Is it really
       related ?

       I finally made some weird hacks and it seems to work :
       I've backed libgthread12.so* and I replaced them with
       libqthread, set LDFLAGS="-L${LOCALBASE}/lib -L${PTHREAD_LIBS}"
       and used gtk-2.0 and glib-2.0 instead of gtk12 and glib12.
       Still, I think that libgthread-> libqthread is enough to make it
       work(libgthread12 -> libgthread-2.0 did not do the job).
       However, I don't really understand what I made : I assumed that
       libgthread12 was refering to gtk12or glib12, and as I don't
       usually use them, it was not risky. Am I right there ?

       * I also experienced linking problems :
         I changed manually work/imms-1.2a/vars.mk
         LDFLAGS = -L/usr/X11R6/lib `xmms-config --libs` -lc -lm -ltag
         to :
         LDFLAGS = -L/usr/X11R6/lib `xmms-config --libs` -lc -lm -ltag
         -lpcre -lsqlite3

       * libtag now installs libtag.so.5, but imms is looking for
         libtag.so.4 (would patching the LIB_DEPENDS line in the main
         Makefile do the trick ?)

By the way, this version is outdated, the new one is 2.2.1. But patching the new version to make it compile is not as easy as I imagine first.
