I'm interested in win32 for my current project. But I've no windows on
my system, so I've to compile all in VirtualBox. This is a real pain
because of compile speed! So I've a big interest to support the cross
compilation support of gtkmm for win32 (maybe OS X later).

I know there're some more or less complete websites about cross
compiling gtk(mm), but they're not complete. I miss a really official
and well done tutorial about cross compiling gtkmm. Here are some
questions and traps I found while trying to cross compile:

- Which versions of the specific libraries should be used? Which one
are tested and verified to build for win32 or a cross compiler? Should
I use newer (the newest?) packages from each project?

- From which source all sources should be used? There're some packages
on that are more or less up-to-date. But they may
contain some win32 patches.

- Which configure options should be used? Which one are verified to
build/work on win32? For example pango has some configure options that
were unclear on win32 for me.

- I had to patch some packages like zlib, jpeg or libpng to get them
working in a cross compiler. Should we maintain these patches or
upstream them?

- In many cases people like to build a bundle for win32 with all
libraries and stuff included. It should be described very well which
files are needed and which files could be omit.

- The default look and feel is really ugly compared to Linux. Many
settings that I configure with Gnome and gconf aren't there in win32.
For example the toolbar icon style/theme (text below the icons,...).
