Everything installed w/.o problems:

--->  Attempting to fetch pidgin-2.10.11_4+x11.darwin_9.ppc.tbz2 from
--->  Fetching distfiles for pidgin
--->  Verifying checksums for pidgin
--->  Extracting pidgin
--->  Applying patches to pidgin
--->  Configuring pidgin

--->  Activating pidgin @2.10.11_4+x11
--->  Cleaning pidgin
--->  Updating database of binaries
--->  Scanning binaries for linking errors
--->  No broken files found.
sh-3.2# exit

But when I run the Pidgin chat client I get this:

Macintosh-2:~ jchung$ Pidgin&
[1] 45544
Macintosh-2:~ jchung$ Xlib:  extension "RANDR" missing on display
Dynamic session lookup supported but failed: launchd did not provide a
socket path, verify that org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist is loaded!
Pidgin 2.10.11 has segfaulted and attempted to dump a core file.
This is a bug in the software and has happened through
no fault of your own.

Anyone seen this before?
