Wow, this is exactly what I always wanted. First rely on a not yet 
released part in your tool chain ... :-(

Maybe I should have been clearer in my original mail or my first 
My argueing was mainly against the libtoolish 'lib' prefix and
only beside that about the IMHO questionable (more unnecessary
downloads/updates than actually solved problems) of the addition
of the 'interface age number' in the dll name (but not in the 
import library name which does not include version numbers at
all anymore)

And even shorter: are the libtool naming conventions _really_
appropriate for dlls builds with msvc for the _native_ win32
platform ?

It's HEAD. And before the currently discussed change it was building
from glib over pango and gtk up to Gimp head (at least with msvc and
short after my commits :)
