There's quite a selection of GTK+ programs for Windows available - Gimp,
Xchat, Gaim, Ethereal, ... BTW, it doesn't necesarily have to be Common
Files\GTK\2.0, it can be any directory as long as it's stored in registry in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\GTK\2.0\Path - this is the key you should check
to see if GTK+ is installed.

The only broken versions of GTK+ in the last few years were 2.6.2-2.6.4, and
only on Windows 98/ME (Windows 95 isn't supported anymore, and even 98/ME
aren't officially supported, since none of the developers has them

The only way you'd get GTK+ libraries that wouldn't be compiled with
-mms-bitfields would be to compile them yourself after modifying configure
