In regard to: [Gimp-developer] Configuring gimp with libpng, libjpeg, ...,...:

The configure script is generated from a source file called `configure.in'
(or `configure.ac') by a program called autoconf. Any configure script
generated by autoconf uses a number of environment variables to control
build behavior. The primary ones you need to be concerned about are:
CC - controls the C compiler you wish to use
CPPFLAGS - controls any flags you want passed to the C preprocessor
CFLAGS - any flags you want passed to the compiler itself.
LDFLAGS - any flags you want passed to the linker.
Gimp doesn't use them, but there's also
CXX - used to select the C++ compiler you wish to use
CXXFLAGS - any flags you want passed to the compiler itself.
In your case, assuming you're using a Bourne-compatible shell (which
would include bash and even `ash') you could do
export CPPFLAGS CFLAGS LDFLAGS
and then run the configure script. If you're trying to do this in a
directory where you've already tried to configure a package once, be sure
you first (before re-running configure) do
or at least
rm config.cache config.log config.status
