As a follow-up to my own question, I added two new ports 
(net-im/sofia-sip and net-im/telepathy-sofiasip) that should add SIP 
functionality to empathy IM client:

For some unknown reason empathy malfunctions when SIP protocol is 
selected. Maybe it's because current version in ports is outdated or 
maybe it's something with my station. I am investigating this.
