Browse ftp://ftp.gtk.org and http://ftp.gnome.org and you will find
zip archives that contain the Win32 ports of GTK+ and dependencies,
and most GNOME platform libraries, and a few desktop ones.
(For instance, ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/v2.8/win32/ has Win32 ports
of GTK+ and dependencies, and
http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/platform/2.14/2.14.3/win32/ has the
GNOME platform libraries.)
There are usually two zip archives for each version of a library:
Runtime and developer. (Just like Linux distros have separate runtime
and developer packages for libraries.)
If your application uses only GTK+ you can use MSVC6 to build your app
even if the GTK+ libraries have been built with gcc (mingw). (You
might be able to use newer versions of MSVC is you are careful and
avoid such GTK+ and GLib API that passes or returns data specific to
the C library being used, like file descriptors.) If you use GNOME
libraries, you have to use gcc.
Some hints can be found in http://www.iki.fi/tml/fosdem-2006.pdf .
