Sven, stop spreading FUD ;)
Cygwin and MinGW are the tools of choice on Win32 for compiling GIMP. 

There were separate makefiles for Microsofts Visual C, but building with
Cygwin's or MinGW's tools (make, gcc, ld, libtool, ...) isn't supposed to be
different from building with the same tools on Unix systems. There may be
limitations or bugs, but everything else is the same.
