One lives in hope....


Needs


  1. building of relevant libaries
  2. building of GS itself


Setting Up Mingw

a tutorial for how to set up a MINGW build environment

Follow these instructions carefully [1]

Get these packages from here

  1. pkgconfig
  2. gettext
  3. glib2-2.18.2-1

Download Gnome binary packages from here. Under gtk+ there is a bundle that has several you need.

and I'm currently stuck here. Running aclocal in the gnomesword directory appears to work, autoconf has an error

     configure.in:48: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_INTLTOOL
     If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
     See the Autoconf documentation.

and automake says

     cannot open < gnome-doc-utils.make: No such file or directory

configure then gets confused on

    line 2622: syntax error near unexpected token 'GNOME'
    'PKG_CHECK_MODULES(GNOME, ' etc

so for some reason it isn't actually calling pkg-config
