So next I tried to download pkg-config version 0.21 and compile it

I gave up.  (I tried once to get glib compiled on windows and it
wasn't a pleasant experience.)

It does not require anything but a reasonably well working C compiler
and a C library,
but can use an installed glib if that is present.

Well, did you actually try compiling pkg-config? I did not investigate deeply but the suggested way of compiling:


Did not work.  ./configure succeeded splendidly, but make
failed and the reason was that glib.h could not be found.

But I don't want to start a discussion in the GNUstep mailing lists on
how to install pkg-config. I just wanted to see how it would work on windows.

No not on win32, but it seems to be covered in README.win32,
it seems win32 build requires glib-2.0.
linux without win32 will build glib-1.2.8 which doesn't work on win32 or something..
kinda odd.
