Sametime missing

Yay, it's working!

I did have win32-install-dir/libmeanwhile-1.dll but for some reason, its
mode was not executable.  So I 'chmod 755'd it and now it works!

Thanks again, Daniel!

It wouldn't be that something is telling libpurple not to load the
plugin, but rather that it can't.  That plugin depends on the meanwhile
library to work - you need "libmeanwhile-1.dll" in your
win32-install-dir (it should be put there by the building process).

If you run `pidgin.exe -d`, the debug log should tell you that it isn't
being loaded because of a missing dependency.
