I'm not sure to understand your question... Can't you just ask your
system to install gnomemeeting, and let it take care of dependancies?

Or if you really want to build gm, can't you at least install binary
packages for its dependancies?

Gm isn't modular enough to be ported to kde... but it works ok with it,
I think...
