I compiled both versions of Ekiga with the same arguments:
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var
--disable-static --enable-dbus --mandir=/usr/man --program-prefix=
According to config.log, Gnome is enabled in both cases.

Right-click where? When I do so on some entry in the Address
Book I just get the four choices I mentioned early on - no phone
number. Another issue: Quite often, when trying to make a PC-to-Phone
call using the Diamondcard service Ekiga just freezes, apparently
unable to contact the server. The only recourse left is to kill the
ekiga process from the command line. Version 2.0.12 never froze on me,
I never had to kill it from the command line.
