The --prefix idea for gimptool sounds like a good and useful feature.

Some work needs to be done on gimptool before 1.2 can release.  In
particular, we need to be able to use it to automate the building of
DLL modules without using a gimp build tree.

Does anyone have skills in hacking it?  Last time I looked it was a
bit nightmarish.  If there's no-one better qualified to hack it, then
I will.  But it won't be pretty :(
