Unfortunately, we have no dedicated Windows developer so it's hard to
give you step-by-step about anything you ask and confidently tell you
"it will work". But what that means is that we are more than welcoming
you if you wish to contribute to GIMP! Windows developers are really
needed since most of us are daily Linux users. The result of this is
that GIMP has much more issues (stability, bugs, UI weirdness…) under
Windows than under Linux. Patches and bug fixes are very welcome! :-)
Alexandre gave you some links which are where you should start, though
once again, the sections to build under Windows may be outdated. But
that's a good start point. If you follow these steps and find that
some points are not right, do not hesitate to tell us so that we can
edit the wiki (or probably better, we could give you a wiki account).
Actually reading your email, it sounds like you may already have built
GIMP successfully. So you may already have some remarks about what we
have on the wiki?
Also I'm not sure I understand all your questions about customizing
GIMP environment or "other tools" for GIMP. But once again, if it is
about Windows development, not sure I could answer, even if I
understood the questions.
Anyway feel free to ask more detailed questions, though you likely
know more than us about anything which is Windows-specific (and that's
good, we would welcome your knowledge there!).
