It appears however to actually produce a corrupt gimp-tips.xml if you have intltool 0.30 (which is the current version available in the fink package set for Mac OS X). Those tips containing <tt> get horribly munged... On startup, Gimp complains on the console:
Error while parsing '/opt/gimp-2.1/share/gimp/2.0/tips/gimp-tips.xml': Error on line 48 char 29: ')' is not a valid character following the characters '</'; ')' may not begin an element name
As a result, only the first 4 tips actually get shown on a build compiled this way; the rest are discarded when the error halts XML parsing. Rebuilding it with intltool 0.32.1 gets things working right.
I'll see about submitting an update to the fink package, but perhaps autogen.sh should be a little pickier to make sure bogus builds don't make it out the door.
