 Clearly there is some confusion here that has been already identified (you
 were following the 2.7.0 instructions when trying to build 2.6.6).

 I've fixed a couple things about your BuildingWinPidgin changes (it should
 be pretty obvious in the history)

 I also want to change the gettext to be the version from the gnome
 download server, not from gnuwin32, but I need to make sure it works

 Let me address the only things that I believe are outstanding:

  * The `winpidgin.c` errors are caused by using an old version of the
  * The installer error is because you haven't generated the gtk zip file
 that is to be included (most likely because I haven't yet updated the
 instructions about that - I'll try to do that at some point in the near
  * The NSS upgrade, I'm apprehensive about.  I'm not at all opposed to
 using a newer version, but I don't much like the idea about using a third
 party binary.  Perhaps you can document the build steps and we can build
 our own binaries?  Is there a way to build it, so it doesn't depend on
