Is there a better packaged plugin?
I know how to use dh_make and debuild (not so much debian/rules, tho), so if anyone could explain me how to strip those embedded libraries and how to deal with that opt/google directory, I could repack it

This is what I found on bug 712377 on the ubuntu launchpad

Ugh, please make sure that any override to allow the installation of crappy packages gives users a big, fat warning about how stupid and dangerous it is to install such packages. I am so tired of these PAID employees churning out such utter crap packages and refusing to follow the Debian policy guidelines. Perhaps if we start calling them on this shoddy development work and publicly shaming these commercial companies for it, they will start to take packaging more seriously or even work with Ubuntu to have them properly packaged in the partner repository.

i don't use googletalk at all. Is it based on jabber protocol? If it's true, why not use kopete?

If you want to call through jabber of Gtalk you can use Jitsi.
