Hi -  Running on SuSE Linux 11.0, and I see that Yahoo mucked things up 
for Pidgin. So I download the tarball from

and attempted to install it.  Executing ./configure  I got the following 
error msg...

configure: error:
Startup notification development headers not found.
Use --disable-startup-notification if you do not need it.

I am not a Pidgin developer so do not know what this means.. Suggestions?

   Thanks  Marc...
