Is there any way those files can be generated automatically when
cross-compiling? (I've no experiece whatsoever with MSVC) If they can,
it would be worth adding the right commands to the specfile of the rpm

> 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 :-)

Yeah, that is a bit unclear. I think the situation is even worse and
that it is not entirely clear whether windows is supported at all.
(Well, obviously it is ported and supported to some degree, but there
seem to be some pieces missing. I know, I know, patches welcome ;-)

> 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.
