Thanks for all your advices.

As Mickael pointed out, the ejabberd 2.0.1 binary installer seems to be well configured by default (expect that I had to enable s2s_use_startls by hand, which seems to be required to enable the "dialback"? feature required by GTalk).

Now I will try to check my DNS according to what you mention.

Results later...
