OK I have the latest gcc compiler and installed Bazaar and setup my ssh keys and checked out  lp:inkscape-devlibs and lp:inkscape.
Compilation proceeded until this error:

Make error line 440: LINK problem: c:/mingw32/bin/../lib/gcc/mingw32/4.6.1/../../../../mingw32/bin/ld.exe: cannot find -lgomp
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

the last couple of actions were:
##### Target : link
##### link objects and library to create executable
--- link / rc
============ cmd ============
windres -o build/inkres.o --include-dir=src src/inkscape.rc
--- link / link
============ cmd ============
mingw32-g++ -o build/inkscape.exe -mwindows -mthreads build\inkres.o
resulting in the error above

line440 of buildtools.cpp did not help me work out what went wrong.
Suggestions ?

Thanks, Mark...

Challenge accepted.

First hurdle - TDM-MinGW 4.5.1 is not current or available. Closest I can find following your link is in here but which one? (compiling on 32 bit windows SP3 but also have 64 win7 system)
or am I supposed to use one of these: http://sourceforge.net/projects/tdm-gcc/files/TDM-GCC%20Installer/

I already have putty and am installing bazaaar now

Hi Jon,
I am using 0.48.2 on windows with a Wacom 4 small tablet using the mouse
and pen devices.
- Not using pressure sensitivity but tablet working for me.
- With pressure sensitivity on - I get an occasional blip of a wider
brush - else pressure changes are not visible.
- Inkscape does not detect change from mouse to pen to eraser.
- Input devices area does not show/register axes etc as I imagine it

Alas I cannot compile C.
Happy to help out with testing and screwup my system trying to improve
matters. I believe strongly in Inkscape and would like the tablet to be
fully supported.
Thanks for your support Mark :-)
If you want to compile Inkscape, it is quite easy to do so on Windows. 
The instructions:
If you have any trouble with it, let us know.
