Re: EXTERNAL: Windows Installer for Gtk+3.6.2 and gtkmm-3.6.0

It matches Windows recommendations as well. They consider that you should rarely ship or install system DLLs, and instead ship all DLLs you want locally, to prevent DLL conflicts.

I'm not speaking as a representative of the GTK project, but I will note that as the lead developer of a large scale app that uses GTK to provide portability to Linux, OS X and Windows, it is my judgement that you should plan to bundle GTK within your application and not rely on it being installed separately. I can speak to this less on Windows, where I have less understanding of things, but on OS X it simply makes a lot more sense to cook up a .app bundle with everything your application needs, including GTK and really seems to reflects Apple's intentions for 3rd party apps that rely on additional 3rd party libraries.
