Check for paths in the 'gimprc' file under the directory where you
installed GIMP plus in the users area under the .gimp-1.1 directory.

In the main gimprc file there is a path called 'prefix' which is the main
one you need to modify. Changing the path should help but I do not
guarantee that this will make it fully operational but its worth a shot.

Alternatively, you could grab the source and compile it yourself. This
would allow you to specify any install path you liked.
