MXit support was not added to Pidgin until 2.6.4.  In 2.6.3 and earlier it was
available only as a separate plugin that could be installed.  You would need to
talk to the people who package Pidgin for the n900 and ask them to update to
2.6.4, as I doubt you're going to have any luck finding MXit support built as a
plugin that is compatible with the n900.
