Upgrading Pidgin and WxWidgets

It's been a few days without any updates on my Slackware system, so finally i decided to upgrade my Pidgin to 2.2.1 (just released yesterday) and also my WxWidgets to 2.8.6. It's compiling now......

Pidgin comes with a security fix. When you are logged in as MSN user and an unknown remote MSN users sends you a nudge, it will crash your system. Check the security advisories for more information. Along with this fix, several other fixes are coming in. The 2.3 version is already started, so the next release will be 2.3 if no more security problem arises on 2.2.x version.
