We can't go backwards to a vulnerable version. Please post about this in the packagers' board. I know someone (Uelsk8s?) has had success building Pidgin packages for VL 6.0 against the new gnutls. You can also rebuild the fox package using my build script for 6.0 against the new gnutls. That did work for me on 6.0. I don't have a VL 5.9 machine anymore so I can't do the rebuilds.
