I have successfully compiled a previously linux-only gtk-based program

good yet.

What is the up-to-date status of getting gtk apps on Windows 10 to look
as native as possible? I tried a etc\gtk-3.0\settings.ini file with
content

  [Settings]
  gtk-theme-name=win32

which does give things a Windows 7ish look, but all window decorations
(close/max/min) are broken and show the default 'grey picture' icon.

This may not be what you want to hear ;-) But you get a nice, pretty-much-native appearance on Windows 10 out of the box when using gtk2 with the MS-Windows theme and the libwimp engine (which is the default on Windows). Latest version 2.24.32.

If you're using features specific to gtk3, of course, that won't do it for you.
