Question #57432 on Pidgin changed:

    Status: Open => Answered

Luca Cappelletti ( proposed the following answer:
There's no particular reason other than packager maintainer time availability :)
The latest 2.5.4 pidgin source works really well into Intrepid so it's up to 
packager time to do the next level.
If you absolute need the latest Pidgin I invite you to test this package here:
this package does not require root or installation to works and run on Debian 5 
Lenny, Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10 (and all GNOME/XFCE based derivatives including 
gNewSense) and Linpus Lite on Acer AspireOne.

or build yourself with this simple steps:

sudo apt-get build-essentials
sudo apt-get build-dep pidgin
mkdir working
cd working
tar -xf pidgin-2.5.4.tar.bz2
cd pidgin-2.5.4
export CFLAGS="-O3 -pipe -march=i686"
./configure --prefix=$HOME/opt/pidgin --with-extraversion=LocalBuild 
--disable-debug --enable-cyrus-sasl --disable-mono --disable-schemas-install 
--enable-cap  --disable-dependency-tracking
make && make install

This will try to build a fresh pidgin 2.5.4 into your $HOME/opt new
folder then you can PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH there and try your own
personal pidgin from the original source
