Building gimp under Cygwin

I have not had much luck building the gimp (Gnu image processing) with
Cygwin. I tried building it from the official gimp tarball, and the
configure script complained that I had an old version of gtk. So I tried
to build gtk from a recent tarball.  While compiling, I got a complaint
that some symbols could not be exported.

Before I post the specifics of the "export" problem (tedious to read)
I'd like to know if I'm even on the right track, generally. What is the
best strategy for building gimp? I have stayed away from mingw until
now, should I use it for compiling gimp? What versions of the supporting
libraries should I use? Will I have to modify any makefiles or other
