After consultation with the Zenwalk maintainer, clarify that the lack of slackware support is for end users, not that Pidgin magically doesn't work there.

    12 We have no developers using Slackware, and we do ''not'' support it, due to a history of problems which are caused or made unnecessarily difficult to solve by the fact that its package system does not support automatic dependency resolution.
    13 We also recommend that users do not attempt to compile Pidgin from source on Slackware, but instead use the packages provided by the Slackware team. If you insist on trying this out yourself, the only advice we can give you is to ask for help in ##slackware on irc.freenode.org, or on the Slackware mailing lists.
