I don't think it is as worth as you describe it here. We have been
very careful about choosing our dependencies. The only dependency that
was added to GIMP-1.3 that wasn't part of GIMP-1.2 or hasn't been
introduced by GTK+-2.0 is libart2.

you should file bug-reports against the required packages then. Solaris
is very special in lots of places and you can't expect free software
developers to know and care about these little details by themselves.
