Dear Conrad,

I don't think they intentionnaly compile without gsm. Maybe it's a situation 
inherited from the time where I turned gsm support to be external.
I asked debian maintainers to include gsm in their next package, I'll see 
their answer.
I've also the project of creating a distro-independant binary tarball of 
linphone, such as firefox guys do for their browser. It will consume more disk 
space but at least will provide a solution for people who don't want to go 
through the recompilation nightmare...
