Well that's really a regretful situation. The VC++ products have some problem while using other libraries such as gtkmm in that it returns a wrong this-pointer in polymophic use. And to maintain the VC++ project file will be a different work to the autotools.
And, it seems you are in eager step to get rid of MinGW support due to the "dll unusable" problem. Can I just suggest you not be so impatient :) ? I hope to let you know the support to MinGW is still very important, and the free VC++ product is essentially a beta one with problems, and less conformance than g++. The MinGW team have update some of their packages now, such as the mingw-runtime.tar.gz, and seems to have a big upgrade when gcc 4.1 is available, and perhaps the `dll' problem will be settled some day not so far:). Although I'm so weak to provide an advice now, someone else will. So, please be patient :)
