enhancement of kopete crypto plugin

Hello kopete users,

if you are using the cryptoplugin of kopete you might be also annoyed by the visual overhead ("Outgoing Encrypted Message:") which is constantly printed with each incoming and outgoing message and consumes more space than the real messages. Long ago there has been a bug report on this issue (https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=77486), a patch was submitted and the bug was closed as fixed, but the patch never came into a final Debian or Ubuntu release, I think because of KDE4. But what about applying this patch against the KDE3 remix repository now?

The patch is hosted here:

I also would like to help getting this patch applied. But I had some problem with the compilation of the kopete package. Normally I just do

apt-get build-dep <package>
apt-get -b source <package>

and the binary package is generated from the source package. But in case of kopete-kde3 the compilation fails with this error:

I'm using karmic with some lucid packages (libc6). Is this the reason for the error? Does somebody know who to fix it?

Thanks in advance.
