I wrote a guide to getting nip built under windows. It is a big-ish
GTK program, so most of this will apply to gimp as well:


Though gimp wll be harder (it's much more complicated and it needs more stuff).

After all that effort, you'll only have a half-arsed development
environment :-( debugging will be painful and building will be slow.
I'd only bother it if you really need to build a native win32 binary.
