If it refers to Cygwin only, sorry then. However, didn't folks said in 
MinGW thread that they didn't touch anything about such flag there? If 
so, then how can it have been removed later in 4.5 or 4.6 instead of 
4.0 like in Cygwin?

Again, I was not saying it was required *for MinGW*, but *for building 
Pidgin*. Note that I'm not saying either that their use of such option 
was ever meaningful in the build process (in fact, they have removed 
such flag while still using 4.4, indicating that it was really useless).

We actually cannot confirm whether the GCC was from Cygwin, MSYS or Pidgin build box (the correct), and which version. It could be from Cygwin, but still my point stands, that the Pidgin developer does confirm that GCC 4.4 from MinGW *does* accept that flag.
