I have problems compiling pidgin 2.10.10 in one of my laptops, running
FreeBSD 10.x:

$ gmake
Making all in plugins
gmake[3]: Entering directory `/usr/local/guru/pidgin-2.10.10/finch/plugins'
gmake[3]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
gmake[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/guru/pidgin-2.10.10/finch/plugins'
gmake[3]: Entering directory `/usr/local/guru/pidgin-2.10.10/finch'
  CCLD     finch
/usr/bin/ld: i: invalid DSO for symbol `cur_term' definition
/usr/local/lib/ could not read symbols: Bad value
cc: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)
gmake[3]: *** [finch] Error 1
gmake[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/guru/pidgin-2.10.10/finch'
gmake[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
gmake[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/guru/pidgin-2.10.10/finch'
gmake[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/guru/pidgin-2.10.10'
gmake: *** [all] Error 2

the shared lib /usr/local/lib/ seems to be fine:

$ nm /usr/local/lib/ | fgrep cur_term
00025b58 B cur_term

What could cause this problem? And can I somehow disable the use of
finch (I don't even know what this is, I only use MSN and Yahoo)?
