So, my question now is, how do I build the plugin? What configuration/tools do I need, and what steps to I follow to get the .exe?
You need a C compiler and you need the libgimp header files. GIMP comes with a tool called gimptool that helps you to choose the right compiler flags to locate the headers and to link with the GIMP libraries. There's a Win32 version of gimptool but I am not sure if it is part of the installer. However it should be available from http://www.gimp.org/~tml/gimp/win32/downloads.html
Some users reported that the gimptool executable doesn't work correctly. I don't think anyone invested much time in this, since everyone who seems to be able to compile gimp and plug-ins so far uses cygwin and/or mingw and thus thze gimptool bash script.
I'm a bit surprised that it shouldn't take more to get plug-ins compiled - wouldn't they at least need gtk+ and/or glib?
However, compiling gimp is described in http://wiki.gimp.org/gimp/HowToCompileGimp/MicrosoftWindows
I would like to get some feedback about this page - once you're able to compiled gimp without problems, you tend to forget about all those minor problems and glichtes one encounters while trying to set up a build environment. If someone wants to do a similiar page decribing how to compile plug-ins, I'd happily contribute.
Andlast but not least, if there are any problems with the build on win32, you could join the #gimp irc channel on irc://irc.gimp.org, I'm usually there in the evening (GMT +0200).
