Thanks Michael, that's got to be it.

I've been using gimp 2.9.2 and 2.9.3, building from a git clone without
issues, using a subdirectory of my home for the install location.

I've now moved the install location to /usr/local, and the autogen, make
and make install steps complete without errors.   Note:  I now use sudo
make install in order to add files to /usr/local, before I simply
invoked make install to send files to my home/gimp subdirectory.

However the new build of gimp does not recognize common image types such
as jpeg, tiff, etc.  During the autogen step, I get output:

     /

which looks hopeful, but at the end there's no mention of jpg or tiff
file support (just JPEG2000),

Shared libraries for tiff and jpeg exist on my system (as I said, gimp
2.9 worked when the install target was my home directory).

     /ldconfig -p | grep tiff/
     /    libtiffxx.so.5 (libc6,x86-64) =>
     /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtiffxx.so.5/
     /    libtiffxx.so (libc6,x86-64) =>
     /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtiffxx.so/
     /    libtiff.so.5 (libc6,x86-64) =>
     /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtiff.so.5/
     /    libtiff.so.5 (libc6) => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libtiff.so.5/
     /    libtiff.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtiff.so/


There must be a simple explanation, I just can't think of it!

Check where you are pointing GIMP to find its plug-ins. This is in the
preferences.
