Even with the newest pidgin release I continue have to manually modify your file in order to ensure that -lpanel preceeds -lncurses during linking.  You folks helped me identify this issue the first time I encountered it so I am wondering if this change affects the mainstream users?  If not would you considering making this change in future releases?

    AC_CHECK_LIB(panelw, update_panels, [GNT_LIBS="$GNT_LIBS -lpanelw"], [enable_consoleui=no], [-lncursesw])
    AC_CHECK_LIB(ncursesw, initscr, [GNT_LIBS="$GNT_LIBS -lncursesw"], [enable_consoleui=no])


                AC_CHECK_LIB(panel, update_panels, [GNT_LIBS="$GNT_LIBS -lpanel"], [enable_consoleui=no], [-lncurses])
        AC_CHECK_LIB(ncurses, initscr, [GNT_LIBS="$GNT_LIBS -lncurses"], [enable_consoleui=no])
