about GNU automake, autoconfig i will read that knowledge as your help.
the purpose to compile and install the GTK+ from sources ?
yeh, shortly i just want to write GTK+ applications which can run on the
Unix-like or Mac OS platforms on my desktop-windowsXP, like the Gaim.
so i have installed the Mingw&msys as emulating for Unix-like system on my
if i just will run GTK+ applications only on Windows, i may be enough to
install GTK+ package for Win32 on windows XP. of course i will need a gcc
thank you again, i will try to check the more knowledge about

Why do you think you have to compile Gtk+ yourself,
especially that you have to start with that? Of course, you
have to compile your app. But the former does not follow
from the latter.

IAFAIK this was successfuly tried with cross-compilation for
MS Windows on U*ix. But cross-compilation for Mac OS X on
MS Windows with MinGW is something that -- if ever tried --
will require much deeper knowledge than what configure and
Makefile.in are for (no offence please).
Since you need the target system for testing anyway, start
with compilation for each system on that system, and once it
works, you can attempt cross-compilation.

And it ended with some error...

Please read some tutorial on the GNU automake/autoconf/...
toolchain (there are plenty of them).

Install it, for example from GladeWin32

I'm sorry but this sentence is totally unintelligible.
