I've also been working on building Gimp for Windows simply because for one
reason or another I have Windows on my main, faster machine, and I've wanted to
get some of the latest bug fixes. I also wanted to fix -
I tried the Linux cross compile using the wiki Mingw64 instructions. I was
trying to retrieve the prebuilt library RPM's from, I think it's OpenSUSE, but
that seems to be outdated. Now I have Code::Blocks setup to cross compile with
MinGW-w64, I’ll try building those dependencies.
I'm investigating MSYS2. It looks like a good project and a lot of other
projects seem to use it to provide releases for Windows, but its a slow to
compile even with multiple threads set. Some of those projects may use Python
so they might be able to help with Python for Gimp.
I attach my current "autogen" and "make" outputs. I am building with most
extras disabled as I just want to iron out the build process first.
Are you building from the main branch ?
Do you get a successful build with Python disabled ?
