Would anyone know how to install pre-compiled binaries. I want to use GLIB and have downloaded the pre-compiled binaries. I'm running Windows XP and have a MinGW compiler.

I've googled this but i'm having trouble making sense of it.

There must be a standard way of doing this.

Thanks

Ok, well, here it is.

I was trying to build GLIB because Pkg-Config needs it but I keep getting errors due to a circular dependency between pkg-config and GLIB. The link below give me a process of bootstrapping which tells me how to install pkg-config to get around this problem. I then get an error which tells me that my C compiler cannot compile the required executables.
SO.. I've decided to install GLIB binaries instead (if installing is the right term). The clearest instructions I can find are in relation to building pkg-config on the link above. The problem is that I can't relate it to GLIB. I've pasted the GLIB Package files (which includes the GLIB Binary, below the below link. Not sure how to cross relate this. There are a dumber of dll's in the GLIB Package too so I'm not sure what to do with them.

I just thought there may be a set way to do this but I suppose it varies with the software.
