[Digikam-users] Compiling digiKam for Windows KDE

I'd like to compile the latest version to run under Windows, but I'm having trouble with the instructions at http://www.digikam.org/drupal/node/402

These instructions mention KDE 4.1.2, and we're up to 4.3.4 now, so I'm wondering if my troubles are that these instructions don't work for the latest version of KDE.  The excellent set of screenshots suggests this might be true.

Firstly, the instructions say to install in Developer mode.  My installer doesn't offer this mode, so I guess I should use Package Manager mode?

Then I'm told to select MinGW compiler on the same dialog.  The screenshot shows a choice of MinGW or MSVC.  My installer offers me a choice of  MinGW, MinGW4 or MSVC.  I tried each of these, but none have all the suggested components available - each one has something missing.

Is anyone able to tell me how to do this compilation?  Are there some more recent instructions anywhere?
