Sorry, we cannot add packages to existing distributions unless it is escalated
through Product Management as the result of an important customer request.  If
you strongly feel that this is important then you should go through the support
channels of your RHEL subscription.

Alternatively you could upgrade to RHEL4, which has gaim with spell check
support in addition to many other much improved desktop features.
