I use a shell script wrapper to start GIMP that sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH
and PATH, and it has always worked fine for me in /usr/local.
Except I did get in a mess with testing stuff once, when I forgot
and ran stuff from gdb or something, and complained that the
plugins werent' working :-)

But you're right, it won't just work if you run /usr/local/bin/gimp
directly and have /usr/bin/gimp installed too.

I wonder if it would be worth having configure generate a warning
at the end? /usr/local was the default prefix for me at least.
