Comment (by EionRobb):

 It'd be really helpful if you could do this as a pull request at
 https://bitbucket.org/pidgin/main/pull-requests/ so that others can
 comment and keep track of changes.

 Another one I've just seen is that libpurple/dnsquery.c is expected to
 fail, so there shouldn't be a warning generated.

 Also, code should be run after all the function variables have been
 defined (eg the pidgin/gtkprefs.c change should be moved below the
 definition of the *next variable) as we target c89
