2.6.2 Fails To Start on XP

Pidgin 2.6.2 fails to run under Windows XP. First I get:

"The procedure entry point gdk_pixbuf_animation_new_from_file_utf8 could not
be located in the dynamic link library libgdk_pixfug-2.0-0.dll"

 "Error loading pidgin.dll"

I do have Cygwin installed on this host. I have tried guessing at various
packages to install under Cygwin but have had no luck.

Does anyone have any ideas?
