Pidgin does not yet run on Android.  Glib, GTK+, etc. would all need to be
available on the platform before Pidgin can be considered.  Additionally, a
complete C toolchain that is capable of producing executables and libraries for
the platform is required and I don't see that in the Android SDK package.

All that said, it may be possible to make Pidgin available for Android, but I am
currently aware of no one interested in making it happen.
