Hi Elle,

Yes all the libs are required to make webp work and animation on works
properly from 0.5.1+ and i used this to test builds for the plugin:

./configure --enable-libwebpmux --enable-libwebpdemux
--enable-libwebpdecoder --enable-libwebpextras

Only the first three should be really required.

Ben, thanks! I finally got GIMP to compile with webp support.

Originally I had installed libwebp in /usr/local, without the above-listed options. But even after enabling the above-listed options and reinstalling, GIMP wouldn't compile - the build would fail when it got to the webp-save code, with the following terminal output:

file-webp-save.o: In function `WebPAnimEncoderOptionsInit':
/usr/local/include/webp/mux.h:454: undefined reference to `WebPAnimEncoderOptionsInitInternal'
file-webp-save.o: In function `save_animation':
build/gimp/plug-ins/file-webp/file-webp-save.c:494: undefined reference to `WebPAnimEncoderAdd' build/gimp/plug-ins/file-webp/file-webp-save.c:512: undefined reference to `WebPAnimEncoderAdd' build/gimp/plug-ins/file-webp/file-webp-save.c:514: undefined reference to `WebPAnimEncoderAssemble' build/gimp/plug-ins/file-webp/file-webp-save.c:551: undefined reference to `WebPAnimEncoderDelete' build/gimp/plug-ins/file-webp/file-webp-save.c:516: undefined reference to `WebPAnimEncoderGetError'
file-webp-save.o: In function `WebPAnimEncoderNew':
/usr/local/include/webp/mux.h:471: undefined reference to `WebPAnimEncoderNewInternal'

Uninstalling libwebp from /usr/local and installing it directly in the prefix in which GIMP is built allowed the build to finish, and now GIMP indeed can open and save webp files.

Does anyone know why GIMP couldn't find WebPAnimEncoder when libwebp was installed in /usr/local? Maybe I needed to tell GIMP to include /usr/local/lib or some such? Maybe something like this?
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig"

Best,
Elle
