Hi, in addition:

dance[~]$ LANG=C spi whatsapp
Available packages:

Available SlackBuilds:
pidgin-whatsapp [Not installed]: pidgin-whatsapp (WhatsApp Plugin for 
purple-gowhatsapp [Not installed]: purple-gowhatsapp (libpurple/Pidgin 
plugin for WhatsApp Web)

To build and install, as root:
slapt-src -i pidgin-whatsapp
slapt-src -i purple-gowhatsapp

Caveat I didn't use these apps, not using Whatsapp so not having an account.
