I should have asked if the latest build environment fetcher was being
used too :) I thought I had tested running from win32-install-dir, I'd
certainly put this in place to try to make sure it'll work wherever it's

#ifdef _WIN32
    sasldir = g_build_filename(wpurple_install_dir(), "sasl2", NULL);
    sasl_set_path(SASL_PATH_TYPE_PLUGIN, sasldir);

However, I don't think any of that failing would prevent XMPP showing up
in the list of protocols (it would fail to authenticate due to not
finding any SASL mechanisms).
