I'm a member of the GIMP documentation team and eager to see the gtk  
native project progressing! I'm working on OS X @ an MBP myself.
So, how you put the description on the GIMP wiki[1]? There is already  
a "How to build on Windows"[2] page which might be happy to get a twin.

Greetings, lexA

Remember: There are only two tools in life. WD-40, for when something  
doesn't move, and should, and Duct Tape, for when something is moving  
and it shouldn't.
So does the universe explode if you spray duct tape with WD-40?
