Many thanks,

just for the record, the Gentoo build option is USE=-gimpprint and is now  
the default. I was stuck because of a work around I had to set up while  
gentoo refused to resolve the matter and marked the bug resolved INVALID,  
so no-one was notified when it got resolved really.

I was able to sort this out earlier thanks to help from Robert. But I  
considered it was getting a bit OT for gimp-devel. so I did not post back  
to list, so let's drop this side issue here.


thanks for your help all the same.
