Pidgin Epoch Removal

With the renaming of gaim to pidgin, we had an opportunity to remove the 
epoch.  I forgot about this in the initial FE7 packages.  Upstream 
strongly insisted that we remove it, so we did.

All rawhide users, you will want to manually remove existing pidgin 
installations in order to allow pidgin to continue to update smoothly on 
your system.

yum remove libpurple
yum install pidgin

Note, gaim-text has moved to the "finch" package.
