Reason for closing:  Won't fix
Additional comments about closing:  Not a libtool bug, not a real pidgin bug. Just live with the feature called "libtool version differences".

Did you try using these commands before running configure:

libtoolize --force --copy
aclocal
autoconf
automake

It worked... however

libtoolize --force --copy

is this a clean solution? On the pidgin bugtracker they said it could be a broken libtool package.
Comment by Jan de Groot (JGC) - Monday, 31 March 2008, 17:43 GMT
Libtool 2.2 is incompatible with 1.x. It could be a bug in libtool 2.2 with backwards compatibility, but hey, they don't raise the major version to 2 for nothing I guess?
The whole point is that pidgin includes libtoolization without a libtool binary included. Every source tarball that is shipped this way is broken with libtool 2.2.

Thank you Jan, but I'm not competent here. Could you post this on the Pidgin bug tracker? http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/5346

pidgin compiles well if you comment the ugly hack that disables schemas:

sed -i -e 's/gconftool-2/no/g' configure.ac
autoconf || return 1

Pidgin doesn't compile from plain 2.4.1 sources running ./configure && make straight after unpacking. This is a bug in the source distribution of pidgin and every other source package that distributes ltmain.sh from libtool 1.5.22 or below. Libtool 2.2 requires some variable replacements which were introduced in 1.5.24.
