Tried removing all the libgimp libs and my prefs for a fresh install

You are running gimp-2.3 linked against the libraries from gimp-2.2
(or 2.0). Fix your linker setup.
To elaborate a bit on what Sven has said:
You can tell whether you're linking to the right GIMP libs by running
ldd on the gimp-2.3 binary. If you're seeing libs like
/usr/lib/gimp/2.0/libgimp-2.0.so instead of
$prefix/lib/gimp/2.0/libgimp-2.0.so then you're linking to the wrong
This could be because the directory where the older GIMP libraries are
installed is in /etc/ld.so.conf - I seem to recall that this plays havoc
with link-time linking (which libtool does) and definitely does with
runtime linking. I'm not sure what the solution might be if you've
installed an official 2.2 or 2.0 GIMP in /usr, and you want to install
2.3.1 in /usr/local or /some/special/prefix - perhaps someone else can
give ideas how to get around that problem.
