Nope. Almost every cvs update requires some action to be taken, to make it
build again. Additional there are quite some 'minor' issues to be
resolved like:

That rings a bell. From Tor's status website:

"Stippled GCs now work partially in GDK. The only visible difference in
 GIMP is that guidelines now have the correct appearance. (If you don't
 know what a guideline is, try dragging the mouse out into the image
 from the top and left rulers in an image view.) I will still work on this, to
 make it work correctly with stipples and tiles of any size."

Is it possible to overload the check/radio buttons via rc-file
as well ? This would give me some more time to understand and implement
stipples and tiles ...

This sounds like you (or your employer ? :-) have some resources to share. 
Any real help with Gtk/win32 would indeed be highly appreciated.
