The result of make after creating the libintl.a & libiconv.a files:

Creating library file: .libs/libgimpui-1.3.dll.a
.libs/gimpui.o(.text+0x159):gimpui.c: undefined reference to `gimp_min_colors'
.libs/gimpui.o(.text+0x170):gimpui.c: undefined reference to 
.libs/gimpui.o(.text+0x1a4):gimpui.c: undefined reference to `gimp_gamma'

and many more undefined references to 'gimp_...'.

Would you mind sharing your libiconv.a and libintl.a - and the corresponding 
.def files? Maybe it can be figured out how you created them.

You mentioned that libintl.h has to be modified - is this just a #define or 
something else?
