There is in the development sources, but not in the released tarball.
You can solve the problem you are having by appropriately editing
Makefile.am in protocols/ and configure.ac in the toplevel directory,
then running 'autoreconf -i'.

See, this would have been useful information in the *first* email.
"How do I regenerate Makefiles", and "How do I create a _new_
Makefile" are two entirely different questions.
You need to read up on autoconf/automake. 'info autoconf' and 'info
automake' contain good, if voluminous, information which is probably
already on your machine. Sean's book, "Open Source Messaging
Application Development: Building and Extending Gaim" is another good
Having read up, you'll need to modify configure.ac to include the
Makefile as one of its generated targets, and protocols/Makefile.am to
include your directory as one of its SUBDIRS. You'll also have to
create an appropriate Makefile.am for your protocol; you can look at
one of the existing files for an example.
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils]. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
