build gtkmm 3.6.0 windows binaries on official gtk 3.6.4 bundle

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Here’s how I successfully built my gtkmm windows binaries based on official gtk 3.6.4 bundle.

The environment is windows XP 32 bit.

1) Install MinGW and select components:

2) extract official gtk3 binary bundle (3.6.4-20130921) archive in C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\gtk3

3) create empty folder C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\gtkmm3

4) ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES: be sure that Path includes the following:
and add the variable

5) Run C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\msys.bat this will create the home directory and open a linux-like terminal

6) the home in my case is C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\home\giu

7) Copy the matching versions of tarballs in the home:

8) copy the attached 7 scripts and 4 patches in the home (giu-mingw.7z):

9) create a folder named “logs” in the home if you want to have all configure, make and make install logs

10) run ./ and wait for completion

11) in C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\gtkmm3 there are now the folders bin, include and lib
which, merged with the gtk3 bundles, makes the gtkmm3 bundle, here’s my result: gtkmm-3.6.0-win32.7z.
