I installed the package of pidgin and it install pidgin 2.2.2. Even though
pidgin-2.5.2 is in the ports system the package in out of date.  Can the
package be updated for 7.1 release?

The sourceforge page for this project says "GTKyahoo project was
closed down on February 27, 2003."
You may have a much easier time installing something that is being
currently maintained. I believe net-im/pidgin is quite popular and
is actively maintained. Pidgin is a messenger client, and it can
handle quite a few protocols, including yahoo.

Cheers, Tim.

The code that never executes at all is the fastest.
