OK, I've grabbed all the latest versions of the libs that I could find.
I'm now getting the following error:
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.8.0... no
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB is incorrectly

OK. Script is finished now.
Earlier, the output is as follows:
Starting to get build environment for gimp, using gtk 2.6
Testing if wget is available...
Testing if unzip is available...

There seems to be something wrong with glib--any suggestions about how
to fix this?

The 2.9 folder is the development version of GTK. 2.8 is the latest
stable series of GTK and would be the best version to compile against.
In any event, you're not going to find Windows binaries of 2.9 for a
while. At least, that's what seems to be typical. Just grab the latest
binaries from the 2.8 series. While the latest binary versions of GTK
for Windows haven't been posted yet, you should be able to get by with
This script is a convenience tool. As a matter of fact, even the
CompileGIMP.sh script is a convenience tool. You could manually follow
the instructions from the script to install MSys, MinGW, and ActivePerl
to compile GIMP against, but as mentioned previously in this thread,
manually building your compile environment can be more troublesome than
anything else when compiling in Windows. And CompileGIMP.sh (unless
it's been updated recently) only references libraries and files from GTK
2.6. That's fine unless you plan to compile the GIMP 2.3 series from
tarball or CVS. They require GTK 2.8.
I don't know anything about the build script. I found it at
If this script in only a convenience, what's the recommended way of
building the GIMP on Windows?
Hope this helps.
