I have been trying to compile the SSL functions into pidgin on Slackware 
and Centos machines.  I have the /usr/local/firefox /etc/ld.conf and I 
also have the ssl support stuff in the /usr/local/lib/purple-2 
directory.  I can't find any nss or ssl includes for the configure line 
and I am just getting confused about how to make it see it.  Could 
someone help with what I need to do and what options to put on the 
configure line to make this work?  Also will using ssl be a option I can 
turn of and on for every Im client?  Thank  you in advance..
