I have a repository with an ambition to build as many gnome apps on
windows with MSVC as possible, where includes freetype. It's based on
scons and still in progress, and I'm just building some gnome related

The repository is located at:http://github.com/zsx/freetype2
The instructions:http://code.google.com/p/gnome4win/wiki/GetStarted

Best Regards
