I am trying to build gtk+ as a static library. I am running RedHat

anyone who tried this for win32 (MSVC) to avoid DLL-hell?

I had no luck compiling GTK with MSVC at all. Many problems with
(I started from Pango [and finished]) config.h , LANG_*, etc...

Instead, I've cross-compiled several things from my Linux box.
Gtk-engines among them - that's fun! Now (after little changes
in theme's gtkrc) I can use themes under win32. Maybe make
a precompiled package for GIMP users?..

About DLL-hell: from MSDN, about .dll search order:

=== cut ===
1. The directory where the executable module for the current process is located.
2. The current directory.
3. The Windows system directory. The *GetSystemDirectory* function retrieves the path of this directory. 4. The Windows directory. The *GetWindowsDirectory *function retrieves the path of this directory.
5. The directories listed in the PATH environment variable.
Note that the LIBPATH environment variable is not used.
=== cut ===

So it seems enough just to install .dlls together with executable.
