You can see on Empathy page that there are several links to Telepathy 
packages not in the book. Those packages add "protocol support" to 

I install telepathy-haze. It provides me with most protocols available 
up to date, but it needs Pidgin (the libpurple from Pidgin). Depending 
on which deps you used with Pidgin, you ger more protocols in Telepathy.

Use ./configure --prefix=/usr --libexecdir=/usr/lib/telepathy 

To build any of the Telepathy packages listed there. I wouldn't 
recommend installing any other packages than -haze, -gabble or -salut. 
They don't seem to be maintained that much.
