As a result of the discussion about compiling kadu on Polish archlinux forum I think libsndfile needs flac dependency.

Without flac installed kadu will not compile and from configure log it complains about missing

configure:9919: checking if libsndfile is in system directories
configure:9941: gcc -o conftest -march=i686 -O2 -pipe -lsndfile conftest.c >&5
/usr/bin/ld: warning:, needed by /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.0.3/../../../, not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-link)
/usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.0.3/../../../ undefined reference to `FLAC__seekable_stream_encoder_set_seek_callback'
/usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.0.3/../../../ undefined reference to `FLAC__seekable_stream_encoder_process_interleaved'

Additional info from ldd and pacman:
