.... It's easiest if you download the native
Win32 pkg-config from www.gimp.org/win32/downloads.html, and install
(unzip) it in the same prefix as where you installed the native Win32
GTK+ etc developer (and run-time, presumably) packages.
Thanks. After doing that, I had to tinker a bit with the syntax for the
PKG_CONFIG_PATH value. Once I settled on c:/foo/pkgconfig, instead of
c:\.... or /cygdrive/c/..., it all came together. pkg-config's --debug
option was a great help there.
One thing I did that I'd be interested in counsel on, if indeed this is
the right place, is that I changed the name of pkg-config to
pkg-config-win, so I could use one or the other, depending on the
context for which an app is intended. Am I just asking for trouble
