Running GIMP under Cygwin (not Win32!)??

I posted this question to the cygwin mailing list last week, and someone on that list referred me here and said he cross-posted for me.  I didn't hear anything from his "cross-post," so I'm trying again...

It would seem it's at least possible to run The GIMP under Cygwin/XFree.  Try as I might, I can't get it to work.  Specifically, I can't get some of the necessary pre-requeistes to configure and make properly (glib, GTK+, etc.)  Has ANYONE gotten GIMP to work under Cygwin, and if so, specifically what steps did you take to get it to work?  I've done a lot of research on this before asking the question, and there is bare mention of this on the web -- I see NO WHERE where anyone claims that this works.  Essentially, there is no SOLID information ANYWHERE on getting this to work.

I am interested only in running GIMP under Cygwin/XFree -- I am NOT interested the Win32 version of GIMP!  Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
