Solution: Linux/POSIX emulation layer.  Cygwin is usually used.

MinGW/MSYS is also workable, IIRC.  I've never compiled GIMP on either, though.

Cygwin or MinGW/MSYS, as I said.

You'll also need the development codes for various graphics libraries,
e.g. libpng-dev.  These are provided in sepearte packages (e.g. select
in the Cygwin Installer) or available by compiling the libraries from

The cvs tool. ;)

Of course, at the end of the day, I think it'd be nicest if they made
an installer for the Windows binaries for the development releases,
but I'm quite sure that's probably more work than it's worth.

One of these days, I know I'll get around to compiling GIMP from CVS
myself.  Just need to clear out some working space first.
