I have updated the plugin with your changes, its loading just fine. However its crashing when I try to share the desktop:

calling GetExternalIPAddress
Segmentation fault

maybe something is broken by the new changes, i cannot test now because here at work we don't have a upnp router.  To have more output you can execute 
pidgin -d

And i wrote some instructions in the wiki, be sure to have x11vnc and tightvnc installed.
If you feel like helping a lot you can obtain more info for the Segmentation fault in this way:

gdb --args pidgin -d
(pidgin start, make it crash like usual)

then there will be a lot of info.

You can disable upnp completely or enable the libpurple implementation (not working for me) in the configuration of the plugin.
This is all I get when I run it from the command line.  Also good job on the warnings, on my setup I have just 2 left:

client.c: In function ‘client_accept_connection_cb’:
client.c:60: warning: ignoring return value of ‘system’, declared with attribute warn_unused_result
server.c: In function ‘upnp_discovery_cb’:
server.c:136: warning: ‘ip’ may be used uninitialized in this function

Phil Hannentok, i'll take a look. Thank you for your testing, it's very difficult to test a social plugin alone :)
