you should update your patch so it applies against the current state of 
development in CVS and we will most probably accept and apply it. You
should note however that the plan is to rewrite the paths for Gimp-1.4.
Simon Budig has been working on this, but I have no idea how far he has
got. Perhaps he'd like some help here?!

Send a patch against bumpmap.c in current CVS.

We are in progress of cleaning up the code and porting to GTK+-2.0. Once
this is done we will release Gimp-1.4. Then development for Gimp-2.0 is
going to start. In the meantime people are working on the basic image
manipulation framework GEGL (http://www.gegl.org/).
