I really don't know what effect that will have on a cygwin pidgin binary.

I guess that isn't really a supported platform (and I don't know that
anyone actually uses it - do you?).

My stance is that if someone wants to make Pidgin work on cygwin,
they'll have to supply patches to do so (I'd be somewhat surprised if
it does actually work as it is now).
