It was looking for X11 stuff due to some header file in  /usr/include/gtk-2.0/gdk/gdkx.h I think. I thought it will get the gtk paths from GTK_HDRS ?= `pkg-config --cflags glib-2.0 gtk+-2.0` (in Makefile.mingw) and we dont need have them in /usr/i586-mingw32msvc/include ? 

Should I have compiled gtk also in the mingw environment instead ? (Looking the above pkg-config in the Makefile.mingw I though native one should do). I tried also compiling gtk using the same configure method as in libotr
(./configure --with-pic --build=`./config.guess` --host=i586mingw32msvc --prefix=/usr/i586-mingw32msvc) but not with much luck.

Also I think the pidgin source is same for windows or linux (?)

I had extracted the tarball into my home directory and set the paths in Makefile.mingw of the pidgin-otr to directory that contained pidgin-source-root/pidgin and pidgin-source-root/libpurple respectively (this make it get the header files except gtkwin32dep.h which was in pidgin-source-root/pidgin/win32 and win32dep.h which was in pidgin-source-root/libpurple/win32. So simply copied these two *win32dep.h one directory up and compiled). 

Can you let me know how to get the right headers for the gtk related and if the copying of the *win32dep.h like above is the right way  ?
