thanks for the response, Daniel,
I took the nspr from the link pointed to in win32 build instruction page. I also have GTK runtimes binary directory in my path (since I am running gaim from win32-install-dir). Still seeing the problem.
If you (or anyone else) has working win32 build, can you just zip up the following directories and post it up.
I should be able to unzip that and just run a make..

It sounds like you have the wrong nspr package. You shouldn't have a
libnspr4.dll, just a nspr4.dll. Then you should make clean (at least
under plugins/ssl).
