pidgin with pidgin-sipe plugin now aborts on connect

Hello Greg,

	Simply editing the Makefile and the distinfo file inside the 
net-im/pidgin-sipe directory worked fine for me. I did the following:

1) Edit Makefile
   a) Changed PORTVERSION from 1.13.1 to 1.18.0
   b) Removed the PORTREVISION line

2) After editing the Makefile, I ran
   a) make makesum (to update the distinfo file)
   b) make all install clean

	Pidgin now connects without any issues using the Office Communicator 
protocol. I've also attached a patch for the port if you'd rather use 
that. If it works for you, I'll submit the patch to PR. Just let me know.
