On where to download the best Win32 binaries for a MinGW/MSys setup ?
I downloaded most binaries from http://www.mingw.org
I also downloaded and compiled a few packages from the newer mingwPORT
Then I also fixed a bug in pkg-config-0.15 to enable MSYS path names
diff pkgconfig-0.15.0-orig/parse.c pkgconfig-0.15.0/parse.c
< const char *const lib_pkgconfig = "\\lib\\pkgconfig";
const char *const lib_pkgconfig = "/lib/pkgconfig";
Then I downloaded most support packages from TML's site...
And also compiled some from source myself
(libcroco, libxml2, libxslt, librsvg, popt)
Unfortunately I didn't keep track of the problems/changes I
encountered, and how I fixed them... I did this some time
ago... (I also used this setup to compile inkscape, so some
things may have been for inkscape only...)

On where to download the best Win32 binaries for a MinGW/MSys setup so I
can craft the right environment to compile GIMP from either CVS or tarball?
I've managed to get GIMP compiling from tarball, but everything seems to
fall apart when compiling from CVS...
Or for that matter, I have to compile binaries for autoconf, automake,
libtool, etc to get them in a position for either MSys or MinGW to run them
(since GIMP requires later versions than MinGW's site has) and that often
requires additional binaries and causes crashes.
However you got your setup working, I'd be grateful to hear... Like did
you download the binaries yourself or did you compile them?
