For the record, the sound files in the source have been moved to
$srcdir/share/sounds (from $srcdir/pidgin/sounds), and installed in
$PREFIX/share/sounds/purple (instead of in $PREFIX/share/sounds/pidgin).
These changes have happened in im.pidgin.soc.2007.finchfeat branch, and
will be propagated to im.pidgin.pidgin once the sound support in finch
is complete.
