Parse::RecDescent is used only by the script-fu to perl-fu converter,
AFIAK.  I get Data::Dumper installed as part of perl-base.  If there's
a perl distro without that, it probably won't be terribly useful for
developing perl based scripts (guessing).  In any case, if 
Parse::RecDescent is affecting running of any plug-ins, I'd call that
a bug.

As far as PDL and Gtk goes, I'm in agreement that it shouldn't 
install those scripts with those dependencies uless those packages are 
detected.  gimptool should be able to install them later for users 
wishing to upgrade later - its the way everything else in gimp works.

This error anyway is legit - you need guides to run perlotine!  It would 
tell you so in a dialog box, but its not availble for lack of Gtk.  In
this case, I think the commandline is pretty clear.

Were the color related PDB errors pre or post Gimp-Edit-Fill changes?
