I seem to remember having this problem in the past, and I seem to
remember it being a difference in how different major revisions of gnome
expect to be built. Like, gnome 1 vs. 2? I also seem to remember that
the file/package names for some gnome libraries in debian were different
than I expected.
I tried to build some gnome apps for cygwin and eventually gave up: the
dependencies list for some gnome apps is huge, and on cygwin
availability can be an issue. I'm sure that someone with greater need
would have found a way, but I wasn't that person.
Not sure how much of what I just said was on-topic, but good luck!
Unless you need to share ultra-sensitive super-spy stuff with me, please
don't email me directly. I will most likely see your post before I read
your mail, anyway.
