I have pidgin installed, but it didn't build or install the binary.
Code:
0 remus:0.0 /home/brundage % which pidgin
pidgin not found

Code:
*  net-im/pidgin
      Latest version available: 2.2.1
      Latest version installed: 2.2.1
      Size of files: 8,673 kB
      Homepage:      http://pidgin.im/
      Description:   GTK Instant Messenger client
      License:       GPL-2

So uh, how do I get pidgin?
Code:
1 remus:0.0 /home/brundage % emerge --info
Portage 2.1.3.16 (default-linux/amd64/2006.0, gcc-3.4.6, glibc-2.6.1-r0, 2.6.22-gentoo-r8 x86_64)
=================================================================
System uname: 2.6.22-gentoo-r8 x86_64 AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 150
Timestamp of tree: Wed, 31 Oct 2007 19:00:01 +0000

Code:
0 remus:0.0 /home/brundage % less /var/db/pkg/net-im/pidgin-2.2.1/CONTENTS
<snip>
dir /usr/bin
obj /usr/bin/finch 2249fe37b295a6ef923036810a138d8d 1194383701

Thanks.

The "pidgin" gui will only be built if the gtk use flag is enabled, I'm guessing it's not in your case.

"finch" is the ncurses/console user interface.

Yep, that is the case. package.use to the rescue!
