it's already time to stop here since any aclocal warnings are
fatal. The problem is that AM_GLIB_GNU_GETTEXT is a glib-2.0 thing. It
is only used for the Win32 build and it is therefore guarded by

 if test x$os_win32 = xyes; then

Unfortunately autoconf doesn't respect this condition although the
generated configure (if you succeed to generate it) works fine. We've
discussed several workarounds but none has made it into CVS until
now. I hope that Yosh and Tor will speak up and tell us why. In the
meantime you could install glib-2.0 (glib-1.3.12 is the latest
release). You can do this in parallel to a glib-1.2 installation.

Read your own words and thing again. If you were having problems to
compile gimp-1.2 from CVS months ago, why didn't you go ahead and ask?
There are only few people left working actively on gimp-1.2 and they
do communicate (by email and IRC). How are we supposed to know that
you are fighting with the gimp-1.2 tree if you don't tell us?
