telepathy-glib does not support compilation on Windows, for several reasons.

telepathy-glib contains code generated by scripts that are run at compile time
- everything in _gen/ is a generated file like that. You can't build it by a
process not involving the autoconf/automake/libtool build system we provide
(unless you construct a build system of similar complexity).

We also don't test compilation with Visual Studio's C compiler, or with any of
the free gcc-based compilers on Windows. We would accept reasonable portability
patches for compilation with cygwin, mingw32 or Visual Studio (in increasing
order of expected difficulty) but can't devote much time to it ourselves; we
don't develop in Windows.

The direction I'd recommend going in for compilation on Windows is to set up a
Unix-like environment using cygwin or mingw32, in which you can run the normal
autoconf/automake/libtool build system. OABuild
<http://people.collabora.co.uk/~oleavr/OABuild/> uses this approach.
