Try to switch off option Tkabber->Customize->Sound->notify_online.

 JC> Comment: I'm not a Debian developer, but shouldn't the i386 in

Yes, it should be "all", I hope this will be fixed in next release.

 JC> OTHOH, can I just change the .deb name and then run apt?

I think "make PREFIX=/usr install" will install tkabber according to
filesystem hierarchy standard.
