Quick starting point for 2.3.19 on Feisty:
1.) download gtk latest
2.) Compile it, with a prefix of something out of the way,
like --prefix=/opt/gtk, make, make install
3.) export your PKG_INSTALL_PATH (wrong spelling) to find the .pc file
under /opt/gtk/bin something
4.) configure gimp 2.3.19 and it will find it.
I had no idea how to do this, and I figured it out. Not rocket science.
