I'm not sure I follow you right. Do you mean to still use the
autoconf/etc. tools for Unix, and to create a whole separated makefile
for win32, by hand?

How difficult and portable would be to make this? This makefile, could
both be used to generate a native win32 library and a Cygwin one?

Sorry if I ask anything absurd, I don't know GNU's build tools very much
(and, sincerely, it isn't an area I like very much, I spent some years
working with a similar tool, propietary, on HP-Unix, and became quite
tired of it :-P).

Anyway, what's the point on using gnome-autogen instead of the usual
autogen? The standard one works quite well in Cygwin, I have used it to
build other packages I need for the application I work for
( Indeed, I have downloaded the source tarball of
libgda 0.9.0 (that does not use gnome-autogen at all, only the generated
"configure" script), and have been able to compile it without more
problems, with a few changes that I saw at this message from Fernando
