According to http://forums.fedoraforum.org/archive/index.php/t-46203.html
liblinc is an old (obsolete?) library. 

You can either

A. Get the old library from FC2 and use that


B. Rebuild the SRPM so that it doesn't link against this old library and
   uses whatever new features are available to it.

Personally, I would choose B.   

The easiest way to do this is as root:
# rpmbuild --rebuild foo-1.0-1.src.rpm
# rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/foo-1.0-1.i386.rpm

I went ahead and did this for giFTui-0.4.1 for you...
