Fedora Core Pidgin missing SSL

I used to be able to log onto Google Talk with gaim-1.5.0-15.fc5.i386, but 
using gaim-2.0.0-0.beta6.fc5.i386 and now pidgin.repo, when I try to log 
onto Google Talk I get:

"Server does not use any supported authentication method"

I submitted Gaim SourceForge bug report 1692563 but the issue wasn't 
resolved. According to 
this is because "Gaim was not compiled with SSL support". Other users have 
had similar problems with Gaim 
(http://shiflett.org/blog/2005/aug/google-talk) and one suggested solution 
(http://shiflett.org/blog/2005/aug/google-talk#comment-22) is building Gaim 
with gnutls enabled. I have gnutls-devel but when I try to compile Pidgin 
the resulting binary either segfaults or is unresponsive. Will future Fedora 
Core releases of Pidgin be built with SSL support?
