Pidgin 2.4.2 RPM build w/o Meanwhile

FYI: in my attempts to build an install RPM of the 2.4.2 release of Pidgin,
I discovered that a line in the spec file is missing IF one wants to 
Meanwhile (Sametime) support.

In the build section of the *pidgin.spec* file:

CFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS" ./configure ...
            # /add this line/

The problem is that even with the "--without meanwhile" rpmbuild parm,
the build will fail because meanwhile support is presumed enabled.
