To get an educated opinion about the other way to build The GIMP
on win32 I've tried an succeeded to build the dependencies from
cvs following Owen's description from

But The GIMP's build fails without giving me any clu how to fix it.
Can anybody tell me what's going wrong?


$ ./ --prefix=/gtk --disable-print

I am testing that you have the required versions of libtool, autoconf,
automake, glib-gettextize and intltoolize. This test is not foolproof,
so if anything goes wrong, see the file HACKING for more information...

Looks like Win32, you will need libtool 1.5 or newer.

checking for libtool >= 1.5 ... yes (version 1.5.8)
checking for gtkdocize ... yes
checking for autoconf >= 2.54 ... yes (version 2.56)
checking for automake >= 1.7 ... yes (version 1.7.1)
checking for glib-gettextize >= 2.2.0 ... yes (version 2.7.0)
checking for intltool >= 0.31 ... yes (version 0.33)
checking for xsltproc ... yes

I am going to run ./configure with the following arguments:

  --enable-maintainer-mode  --prefix=/gtk --disable-print
