I tried the development steps in http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/BuildingWinPidgin.
I downloaded and extracted everything correctly as the instruction tells me. However, it shows an error message when I execute "building pidgin" this step.

gcc: The -mno-cygwin flag has been removed; use a mingw-targeted cross-compiler.
../libpurple/win32/rules.mak:4: recipe for target `account.o' failed
make[1]: *** [account.o] Error 1
Makefile.mingw:83: recipe for target `all' failed
make: *** [all] Error 2

In the 83th line of Makefile.mingw, it is as following:
I checked the environment variables in E:\devel\pidgin-devel\pidgin-2.7.11\libpurple\win32\global.mak , $PURPLE_TOP $MINGW_MAKEFILE are declared clearly there. Do you have any idea of this mistake?
(I build it in Cygwin, Windows, following the instructions in the link above)
