As the author of the Win32/GDI module of libgnomeprint, I can say that 
libgnomeprint supports Win32 officially. However, it's still quite 
buggy. You can submit any bug report to bugzilla.g.o.

Building libgnomeprint(ui) is not really difficult if you know how to 
build hello-world for gtk+/win32. Actually, libgnomeprintui is more 
solid than libgnomeprint on the Win32 platform as libgnomeprint still 
has a well known transformation bug ATM. You can download a copy of 
Gnumeric/Win32 from [1] (which is the major user of libgnomeprint and 
libgnomeprintui on Win32) and open a .xls file with charts and texts. 
The worst case is that you will get mirrored page/text. (You can also 
get the binaries of libgnomeprint in the package)
