determine plugin directory in configure.ac

A few searches on google and the pidgin website tell me that the dirs can
be:

$HOME/.purple/plugins
$(libdir)/pidgin if it's a gtk-type plugin
$(libdir)/purple-2 if it's a core-type non-gtk plugin

But using pkgconfig will tell you what the $(libdir) variable is from your
distro.

The 'variable' flag will only work if that variable is defined in the pidgin
or purple pc file.
