Thanks for the link! By saying that I don't have OpenSUSE I implied that I'd have to either use `alien` (with possible complication if any) or build it myself on Ubuntu. I see there is even binary package for gtkmm2.99 hopefully they will move to 3.0 soon.
The weird point is that, when I try to build under MS Windows, I keep getting useless (without anything between DECLS block) gdk/gdkenumtypes.h even if I delete gdk/stamp-gdkenumtypes.h and rerun make though gtk/gtktypebuiltins.h looks fine.
Oh well, all looks like cross-comiplation is the only option for now.
I don't know if there are many users developing with Gtk+ on MS Windows, but it would be nice to at least make a link to that OpenSUSE archive as there are no traces of binary package (even unofficial) on the main page for Gtk+ 3.0.
