Cross-compiling Pidgin 2.10.7: multiple definition of `___stack_chk_fail'

I try to cross-compile Pidgin 2.10.7 for Windows on Ubuntu (Gnome)
13.04. I followed the instructions on [1] except of two details which I
hope don't matter:
- the Pidgin source sits in "pidgin-2.10.7-win32" rather than
- I copied the Bonjour_SDK from an older win32-dev directory that fits
previous Pidgin versions so that I'm not sure whether I have the latest
or not (but I don't want to fiddle with the Bonjour installer until

When it tries to link libgg.dll it throws this error message (the full
log is attached to this mail):
multiple definition of `___stack_chk_fail'
../../../libpurple/libpurple.dll.a(d000002.o):(.text+0x0): first defined

Google doesn't show up much at all; and nothing usefull. :( Do you have
any suggestions where to look into?
