I have now bluefish running, Dia is running, makes still some
problems, it seems to look for cygslxt.dll in /usr/lib, of course
there is no library with this name.  I have xmlroff which is no GUI
application and depends on glib-2.0, libgnomeprint and a patched up
version of pango (pangopdf) besides some other libraries.  To build
libgnomeprint seems to be no problem without Gnome.

'How I'm doing this' or 'how the GTK people and application developer
are doing this?

Anyway, why should everybody interested in bluefish with gtk+-2.0 need
to build it himself?  It was not that easy, I needed some days to get
all the libraries compiled so this neat editor was running finally.
Have a look:

Would be nice to see if it runs also with glib-2.0 compiled by
