Hi,

I tried to build latest pidgin version using winpidgin-build-fetcher.sh script
but the script fails because it can't fetch nss and nspr zip files.
I found out that the script tries to download those files from ftp://.... but they are no longer exist there or their sizes is 0.
instead I changed the following 2 variables in pidgin-build-files to use https:// instead of ftp://...
and it solved the problem.

MOZILLA_NSS=https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/security/nss/releases/NSS_3_11_4_RTM/msvc6.0/WIN954.0_OPT.OBJ/nss-3.11.4.zip
MOZILLA_NSPR=https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/nspr/releases/v4.6.4/msvc6.0/WIN954.0_OPT.OBJ/nspr-4.6.4.zip

Thanks,
Sagi.

    I can't reproduce this problem, so it's probably local to your connection, but I'm making the change to HTTP because it's more reliable. There's no reason to switch to HTTPS for downloading binary zip files.
