One reason for developing the GTK+ MB-System interface was the need for a cross-platform interface to the MB-System mbio library. The GTK+ MB-System has been built for and run on a Windows® system. The software was cross-compiled on a Linux x32 system using the tools from MinGW.
The following are the brief notes kept for setting up the cross-compile environment, and building the MB-System mbio library and the GTK+ MB-System interface. These notes are from 2008, so some of the instructions may a out of date.
