A short note on this for Ubuntu or Linux users (I normally use FreeBSD):

I've compiled Pidgin on the Ubuntu 14.04 laptop of my wife and it turned out
that the normal Ubuntu distribution of Pidgin is installed below
/usr/lib, while your compilation from source will end up below
/usr/local/lib; especially the will be in the way and your
new compiled Pidgin will not work with MSN until you 'atp-get remove ...'
pidgin *and* the libpurple packages.
