There is some helpful information at about building GIMP from CVS. Click on HACKING. It lists the dependencies (other packages) that need to be installed on your machine in order to build GIMP. The message above indicates you are missing the development files from the gtk+ library.

You need the development portion of a number of libraries. Depending on how your system packages software you typically need to install the -devel (ie. glib-devel) packages in order to compile GIMP.

There are additional optional libraries you may want to install which support various graphic image file formats but they are not needed to do a basic compile and installation of GIMP.
