I think I'm 'keen' on making a HTML page (smiling). And it will be available
this week.

There is one (slight little) challenge:
the packages change (ir)regularly.
Meaning: 'someone' has to keep up with the published packages and check out
if the new one still are 'covered' with the Makefiles and congif.h.

That is why I would prefer to build with MinGW and MSYS. The *nix
./configure checks the installed packages and only gtk-config would have to
be adapted from time to time.

Well... if you guys (and others) can live with a 'manual' system to compile
the builds for Win32, I can live with that too.

I'll keep you posted about the MinGW/MSYS progress.

Yep, it was tested on Win95, Win98, WinME and Win2000.
