I think you actually want to look at "rpm -q glib2," not "rpm -q glib."

Nope!  Sorry for the inconvenience.  Our general feeling is that, if
the packager no longer supports the distro then why should we?  (In
your case I think Fedora 8 stopped being supported around January
2009?  IMO it's dangerous to continue using a distribution that
doesn't have active security updates--I recommend upgrading.)

You're always welcome to download the Pidgin/libpurple source and try
your hand at it.
