I've had issues with this as well.  Although I haven't tested this on
Linux (Debian takes care of GTKmm for me), on Windows/Msys I get the
same error.

However, I can run the individual tools and unzip the file fine.  So
IMHO the problem is related to MinGW.  Just use:
bzip2 -dk glibmm-2.16.1.tar.bz2
tar -xf glibmm-2.16.1.tar

It's inconvenient, but it works.

Happiness has many doors, and when one of them closes another opens, yet we spent so much time looking at the one that is shut that we don't see the one that just opened.
