I've never managed to get autoconf working on windows. I always generate
a tarball under linux and build that on Windows.

Yes, it does need a C compiler, but mingw has one so that's ok.

Almost certainly the autoconf problem messed things up.

It's sadly not all that easy to build from source on Windows, much
easier to use a pre-built version:


The final 0.9.12 will be announced soon and of course that final version
will be announced and linked from the Gtk2Hs website.

If you really want to build from source on Windows I can give you more
detailed instructions, and I should probably update the FAQ on this
issue too:

I've also got some semi-automated win32 build scripts:

and also Gtk+ SDK bundles:
