For more information about the port or GLib, GTk+ and the GIMP to
native Windows, and pre-built DLLs, surf to http://www.gimp.org/win32/
"Native" means that we use the Win32 API only, and no POSIX (Unix)
emulation layer except that provided by the Microsoft runtime C
library. Actually, a pthreads emulation library is used.

only, and no POSIX (Unix) emulation layer except that provided by the
Microsoft runtime C library, and a pthreads emulation library.
To build GLib on Win32, you can use either gcc or the Microsoft
compiler and tools. Both the compiler from MSVC 5.0 and from MSVC 6.0
have been used successfully.
But note that to just *use* GLib on Windows, there is not need to
build it, prebuilt DLLs are available from the webiste above.

With gcc I mean gcc-2.95 or gcc-2.95.2 as distributed by Mumit Khan,
either as a mingw version (preferred), or running under cygwin. To
successfully use gcc, follow the instructions below. We want to use
gcc -mno-cygwin, i.e. produce executables (.exe and .dll files) that
do *not* require the cygwin runtime library. This is called "mingw".
I also use the -fnative-struct flag, which means that in order to use
the prebuilt DLLs (especiall of GTK+), you *must* also use that flag.

(This flag means that the struct layout is identical to that used by
MSVC.)

- _WIN32 is defined by the compiler
- G_WITH_CYGWIN is defined if compiling for the Cygwin
environment. Note that G_OS_WIN32 is *not* defined in that case, as
Cygwin is supposed to behave like Unix. Building for Cygwin is not
supported. Some people have presumably done it, but no changes have
been submitted back.
The Win32 port uses the combination with both of those on. As
The Win32 port of GLib and related software uses only G_OS_WIN32. As
G_OS_WIN32 is defined in glibconfig.h, it is available to all source
files that use GLib (or GTk+, which uses GLib).
Additionally, there are the compiler-specific macros:
- _MSC_VER is defined when using the Microsoft compiler
- __GNUC__ is defined when using GCC
Some of the usage of these macros used to be a bit mixed up, and had
to be straightened out when adding the gcc support. In particular, I
used to check for _MSC_VER in some places where I really wanted to
check for the Microsoft C library, and those checks has now been
changed to G_OS_WIN32.
- _MSC_VER is defined when using the Microsoft compiler
G_OS_WIN32 implies using the Microsoft C runtime MSVCRT.DLL. GLib or
software using it is not known to work with the older CRTDLL.DLL
