Building Pidgin from source, problem regarding XML parser


I wont provide all the feedback from the command line, though this seems to be what's causing my problem
Code:
checking for XML::Parser... configure error: XML::Parser perl module is required for intltool
So I figured I should simply search synaptic for something along the lines of "xml parser perl module", but because I don't know exactly what I'm looking for, I don't really know what package I should install out of the 21 results I had listed for it.

I could just guess, though I don't want to install a package I don't need.

Sorry if that's too vague, let me know if I should explain anything in more detail.

Thanks

Edit: BTW I'm installing on Fluxbuntu and this is the first time I've really attempted to install anything from source. I'm basically at the stage where I have type in ./configure. Just in the process of doing a search so I'm not expecting to be completely spoon fed the answer

You need to install a package called perl-XML-Parser using your distros package manager.

Thanks.

That problem has been solved, though I have another regarding libxml2 development headers .... I'll see if I can work it out ...

- Update -

Configuration successful .... but
Code:
Pidgin will now be installed in /usr/local/bin.

configure complete, now type 'make'

dene@dene-desktop:#~/pidgin-2.0.1$ make
bash: make: command not found
Will see if I can resolve the problem, though feedback will still be appreciated.

-update 2-

Now in the process of building.

Seems to take a long time 0_0

- Success! -

My first program installed from source =D

Not sur if I can convince all my friends to stop using MSN though (I've tried beleive me) so I need to install a supported SSL library ... but which one? Looking through synaptic I got a couple of hundred results.

I need to look for something along the lines of a IMAP SSL library don't I?

Well I still haven't solved my problem.

I have the gnutls runtime library installed, though Pidgin still throws the same message at me regarding SSL support.

BTW I still have GAIM installed which doesn't seem to be having the same problem.

Perhaps I should start a new thread as this has gone somewhat off topic ...

Install gnutls-dev as I mentioned in the other thread that you responded to.

Thanks for your reply :]

I read it and have since managed to successfully rebuild and it works fine now.

Thanks again for your help.

Any ideas what the name of this package is on Debian?
