There are libart_lgpl, atk, and pango at least - a build of the
gimp also requires fontconfig, freetype2 and probably others that
I have forgotten.

All of this information is in the INSTALL file, located at the
root directory of your gimp tarball, and also of CVS.

Nope - CVS does not support specifying interdependencies - it
knows nothing about file structure. It versions files, period.
Luckily, that's all it has to do :) We use good old text files to
specify interdependencies.

Hope this helps,
