Does pidgin need an Internet connection per se or can it run on internal Corporate LAN?

OK thanks I am just trying to understand my options. I do not have bonjour as a selection on either of my GAIM clients. My Ubuntu box is suppose to be 100% updated. I will leave the isolated LAN and connect to the outside WAN just to see if I can find pidgin and/or an IM server that I can install.
BTW - Why is the application still GAIM on my new Ubuntu distribution?
I just configured and built pidgin on the slackware box and when I went into /usr/local/bin and launched it, it claimed that it couldn't find libpurple even though I see it in /usr/local/lib.
I just did a regular native build
So now I am wondering why my recently built pidgin didn't install correctly (at least I assume it didn't since it can't find its own libraries).

No, Luke suggested those protocols that don't require to connect to a
particular server, or any server at all. It looks like bonjour is what
you want if everyone is on the same subnet.
