There are two ways to build GIMP for Win32:

1) Use the autoconf-generated configure script, and the resulting
Makefiles (which use libtool and gcc to do the compilation). I use
this myself, but it might be hell to setup correctly. Doesn't work
correctly in all directories, for instance in the po* directories it
is much easier to use the makefile.mingw files.

2) Use the Microsoft compiler, cl and Make, nmake. Say nmake -f
makefile.msc in various directories. These makefiles are maintained by
Hans Breuer <hans@breuer.org>. They presumably will not generate the
same name DLLs and import libraries as the autoconfiscated libtool
build does, nor necesarily use the same named GLib, GTK etc import
libraries as those distributed from the web site mentioned above.
