The core developers all develop on Linux where building GIMP is vastly
easier, so if you want it to be easier to build GIMP on Windows you
would have to contribute patches yourself. I think GLib and/or GTK+ has
MSDev build files in a build-subdir.

Um, what? Not sure why edited the .pc files, but I'm pretty sure you
didn't have to.

Have you ever built anything on Linux? If not, maybe you should before
you building Linux software on Windows, which is 100 times more difficult ;)
