From the README.win32 in glib's sources:

For more information about the port or GLib, GTk+ and the GIMP to
native Windows, and pre-built binary packages, see . "Native" means that we use the
Win32 API only, and not any POSIX emulation layer except that provided
by the Microsoft runtime C library. Additionally the pthreads
emulation library is used.

As for now, to build GLib on Win32, you need the Microsoft compiler
and tools. Both the compiler from MSVC 5.0 and MSVC 6.0 have been used

You should also be able to compile it in a cygwin environment.
