 The `libssp-0.dll` (gcc stack shipped with Pidgin 2.10.7 is the one from
 mingw gcc 4.4.0.

 The Pidgin 2.10.7 windows binaries were compiled with gcc 4.7.2, so it
 makes sense we'd need to use the newer library.

 It'd be best if libssp could be linked statically instead of having to
 ship a dll that we need to maintain the versions of - IIRC there as some
 issues doing that with gcc 4.4.0, but I'll need to do some testing with
 gcc 4.7.2 to see if it works now.

 The list of dlls built without ASLR are all third party except exchnd.dll.
