GTK+ based ICQ instant messaging client

'gicq' is an ICQ-compatible instant messaging client for Unix systems. It is based on the GTK toolkit. At the present time, the feature list is rather short. However, the most important stuff works - you can log on with an existing ICQ account, search for other users and add them to your contact list, and send and receive messages. 'gicq' uses libicq, which does most of the work.
