BitlBee is available in the package managers of most distros.
For debian/ubuntu/etc you may use the nightly APT repository: https://code.bitlbee.org/debian/
You can also use a public server (such as
im.bitlbee.org) instead of installing it: https://www.bitlbee.org/main.php/servers.html
If you wish to compile it yourself, ensure you have the following packages and their headers:
Some optional features have additional dependencies, such as libpurple, libotr, libevent, etc. NSS and OpenSSL are also available but not as well supported as GnuTLS.
Once you have the dependencies, building should be a matter of:
./configure make sudo make install
BITLBEE_DEBUG=1 ./bitlbee -Dnv
./doc/uncrustify.cfgfor the parameters used to reformat the code.
