I think you misunderstood what libgimp is doing. There is no image
manipulation functionality in libgimp. libgimp is just used to allow the
GIMP core and it's plug-ins to communicate. Without the GIMP core
running, libgimp is useless. So you can't build an application, link to
libgimp and use all the GIMP functionality. What you can do is to write
a plug-in that communicates with a running GIMP process (or even to
gimp-console, which is a gimp binary without the user interface).
