Yes, but there are no binaries of current versions of various developer
tools available for MSYS, that's one problem.
I have not yet tried to build gtk-related stuff with MSYS, since some
people who do that (including the maintainer of the windows port) use
MinGW and cygwin for that, and recommend this solution. It supposedly
"causes less problems". I don't know details, but I'll have to find out,
if I dont't get dlls built with cygwin bash and cygwin libtool. I still
hope I can do it with cygwin, there can only be a few little things I'm
missing to do...

yes, but there, too, seem to exist problems with mixing up cygwin and
mingw libraries.
