This doesn't sound like an add-file problem but an include-problem. More
specifically, it seems that you include gimp.h before the GObject header
is pulled in. Did you read the GIMP include policy in
devel-docs/includes.txt? You can see how other files in the app/widgets
dir include gimp.h, for example gimpcolordialog.c. That file, like most
files in that dir, includes the GObject header indirectly by pulling in
the GTK+ header:
and then after widgets-types.h comes gimp.h:
