    1212  1. Install the [http://cygwin.com Cygwin] Bash shell. Make sure to select Unix file mode during setup.
    1313     Also make sure you install bash, bzip2, coreutils, '''libiconv''', gawk, grep, gzip, '''make''', '''monotone''', '''patch''', sed, tar, '''unzip''', '''wget''', and '''zip''' (several of these are selected by default, those in bold are not). Be sure to add Cygwin versions of any programs you may use that require Cygwin path names (for example, if you want to use vim to edit monotone commit messages, you need to install the Cygwin version of vim -- native Win32 vim will be unable to read Cygwin-style paths). [[BR]]
    14      You may prefer to use the native Windows monotone binary (available [http://www.monotone.ca here]), and/or [http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/MSYS%20Base%20System/msys-1.0.11/MSYS-1.0.11.exe/download MSYS] instead of Cygwin.

    1616  2. Download the [http://gaim-extprefs.sourceforge.net/bef.shtml Build Environment Fetcher] script. Follow the instructions on the website to fetch and install most of the needed build dependencies. The script can fetch Pidgin's source code distribution; you will be prompted to choose which version you'd like to use.[[BR]]
