Yes.  My install procedure goes something like this:

./configure --prefix=/opt/gimp --disable-perl
su -c "rm -rf /opt/gimp; mkdir /opt/gimp; chown glyph /opt/gimp"
make install
su -c "chown root /opt/gimp -R"

(also this option-to-GCC message frequently appears during the compile:
I think that indicates it thinks that's where the locale files should

I don't think it could install them anywhere else ... also, 'locate
gimp.mo' yeilds nothing.

Some discussion on this list has referred to the LINGUAS variable as
having something to do with installation of translations, so I tried
re[configur|mak|install]ing with LINGUAS set to fr_FR.  Nothing happens
here.  At least, there are no translations installed.

$ gettext --version

(Apologies for the lack of accented characters.  PINE won't let me type or

$ locale --version
locale (GNU libc) 2.1.2
[same message as above]

The bug for me is just that I can't get the translations installed though
... is there a 'manual' way to do this?
