Pidgin 2.8.x Dependencies

Would I be correct to assume that the glib dependencies for Pidgin have been 
deliberately changed, (as opposed to someone accidentally building it on a 
brand new machine with the latest Ubummer release installed), to GLib 2.16.0 
or newer? As this results in users of Pidgin 2.7.11 with  glib-1.2.10-28 (In 
my case, Fedora 8)  being nagged to death to upgrade, is there any chance of 
a 2.7.11a version that will permit disabling the "new version" check or; 
Where might I hack my source to accomplish the same thing?
