I was wondering if you have to install Bonjour for Windows if you want to see mt-daapd shares coming from a Linux host.

nope, everything you need is built into windows.

Currently, I’m using mt-daapd 0.2.4-1 on ArchLinux (sillywilly’s package) with Avahi-daemon and DBus running. I’m able to connect and play music fine through AmaroK (on the Linux box), but nothing shows up on iTunes 7 on the XP box. I’ve read that this could be due to my lack of a Bonjour install on XP. Is this true?

Nope. Probably firewall on the linux box? It must be able to recieve multicast traffic to 224.0.0.251 on 5353 and also send to the same address.

I’d guess that’s probably it.

Oh, and I’ve opened ports 3689 and 5353 for this.

The 3689 one is good, but the 5353 one needs to be on the multcast address, not the local interface address.

Bet that takes care of it.
