I'm trying to build libglib on Windows. I realise there are pre-built versions available but I'm trying to figure out how to build everything - including the various Python and Perl scripts. I've mastered everything except for the Python script called gdbus-codegen.py, which looks like this (after I've inserted a couple of paths that are relevant to my particular system):-

import os
import sys

srcdir = os.getenv('UNINSTALLED_GLIB_SRCDIR', None)

if srcdir is not None:
    path = os.path.join(srcdir, 'gio', 'gdbus-2.0')
elif os.name == 'nt':
    # Makes gdbus-codegen 'relocatable' at runtime on Windows.
    path = os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), '..', 'lib', 'gdbus-2.0')
    path = os.path.join('F:/+GTK-SOURCES/gnu-win32/src/glib/gio/', 'glib-2.0')

sys.path.insert(0, os.path.abspath(path))
from codegen import codegen_main

Whenever I try to run this script I get an error at line 39. That's the line that reads:-

from codegen import codegen_main
and the error that I see is:-

ValueError: Attempted relative import in non-package
Various things have been suggested to me. One is to check that the directory containing gdbus-codegen.py contains a file called __init__.py (which it does). This apparently marks the directory as a 'package' which allows things to get imported from it. I was also advised to try running python -m, passing the relevant folder (which declares it as a package) but I couldn't figure out the proper syntax. Mostly I kept getting the error Import by filename is not supported. Finally, I was advised to change:-

from codegen import codegen_main

and just use this instead:-

import codegen_main

but that didn't help either.

I've tried Python 2.7 and Python 3.1 and have now completely run out of ideas. Is it possible that importing just isn't supported on Windows
