 no, because GTK+ told me to stay away from Cygwin and that was one of the packages required.

Have you tried using Cygwin with MinGW?
Currently cygwin's gcc supports a -mno-cygwin flag that will make it use mingw headers and enable it to create windows native executables.
And while it seems that support for this "mingw mode" is to be terminated, for now it's working. ;)
In alternative, you can just setup your PATH so that MinGW's binaries are used instead of cygwin's ones. (I used this method to build erl_interface with MinGW and it didn't complain [much]).
