http://sourceforge.net/projects/rediffbol-prpl/files/
rediffbol-prpl-0.3.1.tar.gz
http://rpm.pidgin.im/rhel/4/i386/ e.g. libpurple-devel-2.6.4-0.el4.i386.rpm
.. Or # yum install pidgin-devel<version>

EDIT : May be a glib issue ? ........Yes, OK with glib2 2.12.3, see EDIT2.
( "rediffbol-prpl" builds OK on any newer Linux.)
EDIT__2_ : Assuming, you have the evolution28-glib2-devel installed:
export PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR=/usr/evolution28/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig/
&& ./configure && make
