What is Gadu-Gadu?

Gadu-Gadu is an IM protocol popular in Poland. You can find more about it here (website in Polish).

I compiled Pidgin from source. Why doesn’t it have Gadu-Gadu support?

We use an external libgadu. Install your distro’s libgadu-dev (Debian-based systems) or libgadu-devel (RPM systems) and rebuild Pidgin (making sure to re-run ./configure in the top of the source tree).
