Pidgin writes logs to ~/.purple/logs on Unix-like platforms, and
$PURPLEHOME/logs on Windows, unless overridden with the -c command
line option.  If you wish to move logs *and* configuration
information, you can use the -c command line option or, on Windows,
set PURPLEHOME to a different location (see the FAQ).

If you wish to move *only* your logs, create a symlink from
.purple/logs to a directory where you wish to store your logs.  Pidgin
will happily chase the symlink and write the logs elsewhere.
