Dear Pidgin Devel Team,

I have downloaded the tar bal of source code for pidfin-2.4.1. I tried 
building this on Freebsd 6.3 but the build breaks by giving me below 
mentioned error. 

gmake[6]: Leaving directory `/usr/home/mayank/sample/pidgin-2.4.1/libpurple'
/usr/local/bin/bash ../../libtool --silent --tag=CC   --mode=compile

I am attaching the config.log file with this mail hope this may help you to 
figure out the cause of this break. 
Can you please resolve this issue as soon as possible and let me know the 
reason for this break.
