Can't install gaim on FreeBSD 4.x

We're trying to install gaim on a 4.8-RELEASE box, and it's
acting like the package is broken.

lilith# pkg_add -v gaim-0.72.tar
Requested space: 42147840 bytes, free space: 46554032128 bytes in 
pkg_add: read_plist: bad command '@conflicts ja-gaim-*'

Er, huh? I got the same on a 4.6.2 box.

Compiling from source gives a failure, which appears to
be from Linuxisms in the source.

Has anyone got gaim 0.71 or later working on FreeBSD 4.x?
What did you do to get it working?
