It's already in ports: net-im/amsn and doesn't need linux compat
%make run-depends-list
/usr/ports/devel/gmake
/usr/ports/devel/tcllib
/usr/ports/devel/tcltls
/usr/ports/graphics/imlib
/usr/ports/x11-toolkits/tk84

I've installed it and someone with a login has logged in but that's the 
extent of testing here, ie not tested with a webcam.
