You can build pidgin with only the XMPP plugin or remove the other
libraries manually.  The problem is that nothing will stop the user from
obtaining another copy of Pidgin or some other IM client on the
computer.  If you're building for Windows, you can delete the DLLs, but
if the user tries updating from, they'd end up getting our
version with all the features enabled.

A complete solution probably involves use of network filtering in your
office environment.
