Yes, if you have this script available it would be wonderful. The only shortcoming of these binaries from OpenSUSE that they lack dot lib files for MS linker and don't have property sheets that make life easier in Visual Studio IDE. Though both problems are doable as dot lib files can be generated and all properties can be set semi-manually with pkg-conf.
I'm not sure what is the overall goal for GTK+ for non-linux platform. Shall it be buildable under MS Windows or cross-compilation is the only planned strategy? In former case, I guess it makes sense to debug build process as I had all ./configure prerequisites satisfied. Though I feel like I'm on my own under MS Windows :-)
Unfortunately cross-compiling my entire project is not an option for me as base classes for DirectShow from Platform SDK that I use have a lot of MS specific code and I failed to build it even with MinGW. So I really hope that an opportunity to use MS compiler and linker out-of-box (like gtkmm 2) will be preserved.
