Hi!  I tried to go down this path... and did a configure under MSYS to 
produce the files... and adjusted the files slightly.
Now, when I try to compile pixman with Visual Studio 2005, I get this 
error (a large number) in pixman-region.c

1>..\..\..\pixman\pixman\pixman-region.c(109) : error C2061: syntax 
error : identifier 'PREFIX'
1>..\..\..\pixman\pixman\pixman-region.c(109) : error C2059: syntax 
error : ';'
1>..\..\..\pixman\pixman\pixman-region.c(109) : error C2078: too many 

The first of these lines is:
static const box_type_t PREFIX (_empty_box_) = { 0, 0, 0, 0 };

Any idea what I can try?
