This is source code, not a working application.  You will probably
want to install Pidgin for OS X via fink or macports, if you do not
wish to mess with source code.  However, you may be well served by
using Adium ( instead.

Also, it is TOTALLY AWESOME that your email is from "Communications
Consultants" and contains 34 lines of useless boilerplate beneath the
< 3.4 lines of useful content.
