When you're cross-compiling for Windows, nothing at all should be
looking for X11/Xutil.h.  Did you give the paths to the *win32* pidgin
and libpurple sources in /usr/i586-mingw32msvc/include/ ?  You should
also have the gtk-2.0/{gtk,gdk,gdk-pixbuf} header files in there.  There
should be no references to include files under X11 in those.
