#4706: Remove unnecessary  beeping

 Pidgin makes my computer beep, using the PC Speaker. This is non-standard
 behavior on Windows, making it the only program I use that beeps. It's
 also highly annoying, since for some crazy reason I cant shut off my PC
 speaker without unplugging it (and I might!).

 It seems to beep most when holding backspace a little too long when
 erasing something you've typed in to the chat input. I've only stared at
 the code for 3 minutes, but my guess is that "on_edited" in spellchk.c is
 the culprit. I'm betting that if gdk_beep was removed from there,
 everything would be super great. Although, I see "beep()"s and
 "gdk_beep()"s scattered everywhere. If was up to me, I'd wipe out every

 If I had my way, I'd remove all beeps from the code.
