Thanks for the reply.  So, what tools do I need and what command do I give
to build the GTK+ on Windows?  I know on Linux you type autogen.sh and then
make.  The weren't many details in the bug page.  I'm building an app to be
portable on all three OS's, and stuck on getting WebKit to work on all three
platforms without the Support Libraries, so it would be great if I could
figure out how to use the GTK+ port for both Linux and Windows.
