The biggest hurdle seems to be the different msvcrt.dll (C runtime library) versions for the libs we use, as Gerald already mentioned - I'm still thinking about the possibilities to solve this.
If we need to we can split the packages subdirectory in
wireshark-win32-libs into packages/msvcrt and packages/msvcr71.
Sounds like an approach to it.

I would like to avoid compiling libs "on our own" where possible - especially compiling GTK/GLib on Win32 "from scratch" doesn't sound like a task I would really love to work on ;-)
However, if there's no other way ...
