More Hacking:

Wahoo! I figured that as soon as I wrote my gripes about GTK+ Win32 compilation down, I'd get it solved.

Here's what worked:

  • Install Mingw.
  • Install Cygwin (REQUIRED, even though we'll be using the Mingw compiler). There is a bash script that is required to create the .DLL.
  • Make sure that Cygwin is after Mingw in PATH.
  • Make sure the current build directory is in PATH (required so that the generated glib-1.3.dll can be found for later build steps).
  • make -f makefile.mingw
  • Copy the results to a more useful place when done.

Now, hopefully I can repeat these steps ...
