Sam, I think I'm missing something. What's really needed is a static
build of up-to-date version of GIMP. That's all.

It doesn't have to be RPM, and it doesn't have to be DEB. It doesn't
even have to be installable. A simple static build inside a tarball,
provided by download.gimp.org, will work just fine. Thousands and
thousands of Blender users will confirm.
