well I'm still having issues with installing these packages and I try
my best to get them install. Still googling how to do so.

Well I though to have  a look at the code of empathy and try to make
some patches. That's why I wanted to build it from source first. I got
a git clone. I'm on Fedora 14. I tried autogen.sh of empathy, it said
these these packages are missing and I tried my best to compile them
still I couldn't. Isn't there any other way to get the source compiled

Best Regards,
