When trying to compile pidgin 2.4.1 using windows gaim build fetcher an error occurs stating that sasl/sasl.h is not found.
I researched the issue and found that the build package downloads Cyrus SASL dev package 'cyrus-sasl-2.1.22.zip'. In pidgin 2.4.1 the required sasl package is sasl-2.1.22-daa1.zip.
It is found at the following location:
The pidgin-build-files and pidgin-build-md5s files need to be modified to accomodate this.
I've tested the changes to these to files locally and it appears to fix the problem.
This can be fixed in two ways. Replace the two files with the ones I have attached and thus fixing the issue for 2.4.1. Or simply adding the new cyrus-sasl package to the pidgin-build-files and pidgin-build-md5s along side the old one thereby maintaining backwards compatibility for 2.4.0.
