Obtaining symbol file for Windows

I would like to debug an issue that I have been experiencing in the
Windows version of Pidgin.  I do not have the symbol file for this
application so I am having difficulty getting a useful stack trace from
WinDbg.  The problem I have is not a crash, it is a high CPU hang.  I
downloaded the debug version of Pidgin and even created a bat file to
create debug logs in case the problem happens again.  I would prefer to
debug the process while it happens but I need the symbol file.  Could
someone please give me some suggestions on how to generate or obtain the
symbol file for a given release?
