Suggestions for deploying an application ?

Just as a matter for discussion - what do people think is the best way
to deploy a GNUstep application to Windows users ?

So far I have come up with three options:

1) Try and compile and run the application using the Windows backend for
   GNUstep. This is my least favourite as (to date) I have never managed to
   get a working GNustep installation on Windows.

2) Run an X11 server on the Windows machines, and host all the applications
   on a Unix server using remote display to the Windows clients. This was
   my intended solution until earlier today.

3) Install Cygwin/X11 onto the Windows machines and compile up a complete
   GNUstep installation on each of them to run the application locally.
   I have only just though of this, and it looks quite appealing....

The application uses text fields, popups and such like, with the user
interface constructed with renaissance. We already deploy it to OSX machines
quite happily. There are only two or three Windows machines which need to be
able to access it.

Any sugggestions ? Currently I am trying to be as open minded as possible
about the best solution.
