Could you please explain what's so painful about it? Almost all
distributions include packages for it for quite some time already and
even compiling from source is pretty much straight-forward.

Please note that during the 1.3 development process we did never
depend on the very latest versions of the required libraries. We
always assured that even debian testing which is a very conservative
distribution has the packages available that are needed to build
GIMP-1.3. If we decided to change our dependencies to a newer version,
we always checked if this is really necessary.
