The definition USE_THREADS won't be set anywhere, so your changes won't take any effect ?!?
Has this to be added to the config.h.win32 file?
Yes, or to config.nmake.
How is it done for UNIX builds? I would imagine, that it's done using 
the config.h created by configure?
In that case, we might want to do it the same way (defining 
USE_THREADS in config.h.win32). As the detection of the GTK
version is done in the code (main.c) this should do in all cases.
Well, I've tried defining USE_THREADS in config.h.win32.

This required to add gthread to the libs, so added to the config.nmake the gthread like:
GLIB_LIBS=$(GLIB_DIR)\lib\glib-$(GLIB_VERSION).lib \
   $(GLIB_DIR)\lib\gmodule-$(GLIB_VERSION).lib \
   $(GLIB_DIR)\lib\gobject-$(GLIB_VERSION).lib \
   $(GLIB_DIR)\lib\gthread-$(GLIB_VERSION).lib

After that, starting Ethereal required g_convert_init from libglib-2.0-0.dll, which isn't defined anywhere.

So, I didn't succeeded to use threads with GTK2.4 and MSVC this time :-(
