please file a bug-report with all the information that might be useful.

obviously Tor and Hans have some problems with the way we reorganized
the code. I'm sure however that this can be solved. Due to the much
improved abstraction layers in GLib-2.x, the GIMP-1.3 source tree is a
lot more portable and should compile out-of-the-box provided you get
the build system setup correctly. But then, I've never tried it
myself, so you should probably ignore me.
