In my experience, using SRV records for your DNS is not required if the 
A record points to the right place.  I have this setup for 
jabber.duke.edu and it works with gmail.

What Iyou need to do is configure your jabber server to use SRV records. 
  Instructions for doing this can be found here: 

I've also enabled s2s_user_starttls, although I don't know if that's 
required for gmail.
