pidgin-otr 4.0 Configure error - build failure due to missing pidgin.pc

Reported by: maccy@… Owned by: dbevans (David B. Evans)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc: rsync@…
Port: pidgin


Since pidgin has been updated to version 2.10.9, pidgin-otr fails to configure. It cannot find pidgin anymore:

checking for EXTRA... configure: error: Package requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.6 gtk+-2.0 >= 2.6 pidgin >= 2.0 purple >= 2.0) were not met:

No package 'pidgin' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables EXTRA_CFLAGS
and EXTRA_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling pidgin. Pidgin builds fine, but pidgin-otr still fails to find it during configure.
