Did you try passing a --host switch to the configure script?
I just noticed that there is a problem in that pkgconfig's Makefile.am
sets pkg_config_CFLAGS and pkg_config_LDFLAGS vars (on Win32), but
automake 1.4-p5 used when generating the Makefile.in in the pkgconfig
tarball doesn't notice those. I use automake-1.5a myself, and it
does. So, you have to manually add those make vars to the compiler

This refers to the makefile.mingw and makefile.msc files in the GLib

Not really any step-by-step guide. One is sorely needed.
