Perhaps you should be frustrated with Skype for not making their code 
more portable.

I downloaded the gizmo packages which are supposed to be for Debian and 
had no trouble installing them into Ubuntu. Gizmo is a VoIP program 
quite similar to Skype, but based on the SIP protocol (open standard) 
and from what I've been hearing it has more features and better audio 
quality than Skype anyhow.

Perhaps you should give Gizmo a try?
