Pidgin 2.7.4 Fixes Many Bugs

For some time, Pidgin users are left with bugs lurking on 2.7.3, but that will (hopefully) ends now, since Pidgin developers has released 2.7.4, the latest version which incorporates a bunch of bug fixes along with several security fixes that filled the Changelog.

Since it hasn't been released under -Current tree, i took an early step building it using SlackBuild from -Current and created the 2.7.4 for Slackware-Current. It works just as expected and i'm now running 2.7.4.

For those who have used Pidgin, please be patient as it will be released on -Current soon (hopefully with the next batch of updates).
