Comment: GCC 4.4.0 already specified as requirement above. The -mno-cygwin flag is indeed needed, see http://pidgin.im/pipermail/support/2011-December/011159.html.

-  First, make absolutely sure you have the GCC installer version 4.4.0 installed -- newer versions will cause the long build process to fail. You can do this by typing 
-gcc --version
-  Second, you'll have to edit the (current) Pidgin makefile, because there's a silly flag buried in it that WILL cause your makefile to break. In your Pidgin folder (e.g. /pidgin-devel/pidgin-xxxx/libpurple/win32/global.mak), remove the "-mno-cygwin" flag, leaving your build file like  this:
-CFLAGS += -O2 -Wall $(GCCWARNINGS) -pipe -mms-bitfields -g
-  If you don't remove that silly flag, you'll get build errors about halfway through. (It looks like the flag was deprecated about 5-10 years ago anyway.)
