Supplementary...

I tried to compile Pigdin and Purple with the defaults that are in the
FreeBSD Port. Those look like this:

  [ ] SILC      Secure Internet Live Conferencing support
  [X] GNUTLS    GNUTLS encryption support
  [ ] NSS       Mozilla NSS encryption support
  [ ] SASL      Cyrus SASL support (for jabberd)
  [X] DBUS      Enable DBUS bindings
  [ ] PERL      Perl scripting
  [X] BONJOUR   Enable mDNS support
  [ ] SAMETIME  Enable Sametime client support
  [ ] TCLTK     Tcl/Tk scripting

It didn't make any diff when runningi - at least I can't see any. However,
I noticed this during the config of purple:

checking for HOWL... yes
checking howl.h usability... yes
checking howl.h presence... yes
checking for howl.h... yes
checking for sw_discovery_init in -lhowl... yes
checking for SILC... Illegal instruction (core dumped)

checking sys/utsname.h usability... yes
checking sys/utsname.h presence... yes
checking for sys/utsname.h... yes
checking for uname... yes
checking for -Waggregate-return option to gcc... yes

Maybe this helps a little.
