if you are using KDE3 you can try out kopete. there is a bug fix release coming out in the next few days (0.6.1) that you'll want to wait for if you use MSN, though. of course, you could be a brave soul and use the CVS version =)

First, read the excellent FreeBSD handbook, and learn how to cvsup your ports.

Next pick one of:

cd /usr/ports/net/psi && make install clean
pkg_add -r psi
portinstall psi
portupgrade -N psi

The first will build it locally, the next will fetch a package, the other two are aliases to the same command but will build the port locally while keeping your package registration database nice and clean. If you want to use portinstall/portupgrade with packages, but falling back to the building it locally, add -P to the commandline (so "portinstall -P psi").

If you want to use portinstall/portupgrade with only binary packages, add -PP. If you later cvsup your ports tree, and there is a new version, use "portupgrade psi" to have it upgraded, adding -P or -PP as you wish.

The current version in ports is 0.8.7, they are generally kept very up to date.
