[MS4W-Users] svg symbols

Hello everyone,
I have installed ms4w in a windows machine. I use a postgresql db with postgis extension enabled in which I have imported osm 
data with osm2pgsql command line tool. Finally I use the p.mapper framework (unzip and copy in apache/htdocs folder) for
displaying data from db to the browser. Everything works ok. 
Then I tried to style my map. I want to use symbols of svg type ( http://mapserver.org/mapfile/symbol.html ). 
In the link mentioned above I read that svg symbols require the libsvg-cairo library. 
Is there a tutorial on how to accomplish this?
Does exist an ms4w distribution with this library recompiled?
I want some instructions on how to use svg symbols for styling my map. 
In this link http://cairographics.org/download/  in the windows section I followed this http://gladewin32.sourceforge.net/ link
then downloaded Gtk+ 2.12.9 Development Environment Revision 2 (17,172KB) and run the installer. Do I have to copy .dll and paste them in 
ms4w folder (and where exactly)? Do I have to add something to the path variable?
Thanks in advance
best regards,                      Dimitrios
