Problems with emacs built against gtk3

When I build emacs against gtk3, it is unusable. Here are the symptoms when the resulting emacs is started in an xterm window:

$ ./emacs -Q&
[1] 3344

(emacs:3344): GLib-WARNING **: In call to g_spawn_sync(), exit status of a child process was requested but SIGCHLD action was set to SIG_IGN and ECHILD was received by waitpid(), so exit status can't be returned. This is a bug in the program calling g_spawn_sync(); either don't request the exit status, or don't set the SIGCHLD action.

** (emacs:3344): WARNING **: Abnormal program termination spawning command line `dbus-launch --autolaunch=0b8f184fe6d82872ee8db8724ecfdb90 --binary-syntax --close-stderr':

(emacs:3344): Pango-WARNING **: No such file or directory

A few seconds later, emacs dies (the window disappears and the process is gone, with no error messages), and two dbus processes remain:

$ ps | grep dbus
5188 1 3344 5188 7 1002 19:07:31 /usr/bin/dbus-launch
6452 1 6452 6452 ? 1002 19:07:31 /usr/bin/dbus-daemon

If I start emacs again without killing the dbus processes, I don't get the first two warnings but I still get the third. Again, emacs dies after a few seconds.

I think the pango warning is Cygwin specific, but the rest of it might not be. Similar symptoms were reported on Fedora:

But there are some differences, so I thought I should report it here just in case part of the problem is Cygwin specific. My cygcheck output is attached but probably not relevant.
