Ok, I'll just uninstall cygwin and start over. Just tell me *exactly*
which Cygwin packages I need to install.

You can install everything except libintl and libiconv (they are part of gtk+-2.0 on win32 : see your list below). Or, if you install them, remove the corresponding .la files (renaming them is maybe better) in /usr/lib.

 From the gimp site and your site I have:
Can I ditch any of these, or are they all necessary?

All are required, except maybe the image processing ones (libjpeg, linpng, ...). Better to install them all.

Perhaps a step-by-step guide on getting started with gtkmm2 with Windows could be put up at the gtkmm2 site? I have some rudimentary Linux experience and I couldn't have figured things out without these mailing lists. How would someone without any Linux experience at all use gtkmm2 under Windows?

If gtkmm could be compiled with Visual Studio, things would be much easier on the user side. And we need a nice standard windows installer for gtk+-2.0 (and gtkmm-2.0) on win32 !!! Also, if somebody could try to compile (or to use my binaries) with mingw+msys, that would be great. Time to (re-)open a bugzilla entry, Murray ?
