Thanks John. This should help tremendously. Just two other questions
1) Is there a way to get python to work on Windows AND is it even
necessary to build GIMP?
2) Where do I install/unzip the all the auto tools? Should I just unzip
them to a location in MinGW and use the export command to include those
directories? I'm assuming that I don't need a special Win32 build of
these tools so I've just downloaded them from their respective
locations. If I'm wrong about this, please let me know so I can get the
right copies. Thanks.

It's not GIMP, but I wrote a HOWTO a couple of days ago for building
my gtk+ app under mingw:
For GIMP, don't install fftw. You'll need to install some other
libraries too, http://gimp.org/source has a list. I really wouldn't
carelessly copy DLLs over from previous versions, I think you're sure
to find yourself in a very bad, mysterious place.
That should be enough to be able to build from a distribution tarball
... if you need to build from CVS, it'll be quite a bit more difficult
since you'll need to set up all the auto tools stuff as well.
I'm not a windows person so I probably made it more difficult than it
needs to be. But I did end up with a binary that seems stable.
