  Yes, I can. Last time (with gimp-print-4.1.99-a2), when I had exactly this
  problem, it was traced down to what I have described: different libtool

  ...wait a "moment"...I have to recompile the whole stuff again, cause
  I went back to gimp-print 4.05....I _need_ a running gimp with
  printing capabillities...

  Now...this is the output (same as last time I tried the *a2-version....) 
  after clicking File->Print

  /usr/lib/gimp/1.2/plug-ins/print: fatal error: Segmentation fault
  /usr/lib/gimp/1.2/plug-ins/print (pid:5913): [E]xit, [H]alt, show [S]tack trace or

  #1  0x40227014 in __DTOR_END__ () from /usr/lib/
  #2  0x62696c2f in ?? ()

  ldd print gives me  => /usr/lib/ (0x40021000) => /usr/lib/ (0x40049000) => /usr/lib/ (0x4006a000) => /usr/lib/ (0x401bd000) => /usr/lib/ (0x401fd000) => /usr/lib/ (0x40201000) => /lib/ (0x40228000) => /usr/X11/lib/ (0x4022c000) => /usr/X11/lib/ (0x4023a000) => /lib/ (0x4031a000) => /usr/lib/ (0x40341000) => /lib/ (0x403ea000)
        /lib/ => /lib/ (0x40000000)

  Because the reason -- as it was the same last time -- wasn't removed.

  Me too...I only repeating the answeres I got last time...
