Umm. It almost sounds as if the makefile you are using hasn't properly
had all the automake variables expanded. Edit the makefile, look for
the @whatever@ and fix it, it hopefully should be pretty obvious what
the replacement should be.

But anyway, to the point: I am not at all sure that GTK+ 1.3.5 will
work at all, or even build, on Win32 without possibly major surgery.
If Hans Breuer has managed to keep up with the pace of changes to GTK+
and committed changes while I haven't done anything, the makefiles for
MSVC might be up-to-date, but not the mingw ones.

If you want stability, use the version available prebuilt from (GTK+ 1.3.0+).

Sorry, no. I have been kinda offline for over a month now; We moved
and unexpectedly the new house didn't have cable modem service
available, as I had assumed. I am now waiting for the company owning
the house to install net access (the house is pre-wired with
twisted-pair Ethernet in all rooms, yeah, and they have a deal with an
ISP to connect all their houses). Oh well, maybe being cut off from
the net during evenings and weekends has been a good thing, my wrists
are in much better shape now, and I have had time to get stuff done
for the home at evenings. Three visits to IKEA in four weeks, a couple
of visits to hardware stores every week ;-)
