 	I'm seeing the following error during make check for pidgin 
2.6.2 (new since 2.6.1).

/bin/sh ../../libtool --silent --tag=CC --mode=link gcc  -g -Os  -L/sw/lib 
-o check_libpurple  check_libpurple-check_libpurple.o 
check_libpurple-test_cipher.o check_libpurple-test_jabber_jutil.o 
check_libpurple-test_qq.o check_libpurple-test_yahoo_util.o 
check_libpurple-test_util.o -L/sw/lib -lcheck -L/sw/lib -lgobject-2.0

../../libpurple/protocols/yahoo/libymsg.la ../../libpurple/libpurple.la 
-ldb -lpthread -lresolv  -Wl,-framework,IOKit 

*** Warning: Linking the executable check_libpurple against the loadable

*** Warning: lib libqq.so is a module, not a shared library

*** And there doesn't seem to be a static archive available
*** The link will probably fail, sorry
../../libpurple/protocols/qq/.libs/libqq.so is input for the dynamic link

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[4]: *** [check_libpurple] Error 1

I haven't looked into this deeply yet, but is there a non-module version 
of this library that can/should be linked?
