Installing dependencies not working

http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm trying to compile Pidgin from source. I've tried following a tutorial (http://www.howtogeek.com/106526/how-...are-on-ubuntu/) but it doesn't seem to be working. I navigate to my Pidgin folder and use auto-apt and configure, which should install the dependencies as needed. The terminal zooms through all the stuff, but eventually it stops and I have to manually install something. Isn't it possible to get this installation to be a fully automatic? I tried using apt-get build-dep, but configure it still halts. Right now, it says Code: checking for FARSIGHT... no Install the necessary g (Hardware)
