This is really something that needs to be fixed in gimp.m4.  Gimp
developer folks, could you please check this?

Subject: failure with gimp 1.1.23 (was Re: [Bug #116288] configure fails
 withgimp 1.1.17)
Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII

Sorry to bug you again about this, but I have found an honest bug in
configure for print-4.0.b[23].

I gave up on gimp 1.1.17 (as you said) and upgraded to gimp 1.1.23 (the
last one to use glib/gtk 1.2.7).

configure still did not work properly.  After digging around I found the
following chunk of C code in two places in configure:

  NULL,  /* init_proc */
  NULL,  /* quit_proc */
  NULL,  /* query_proc */
  NULL   /* run_proc */

The problem is that the definitions in question did not change until gimp
1.1.24 (not 1.1.20 as configure is testing for).  Gimp 1.1.20 - 1.1.23 all
use GPlugInInfo (I downloaded all the sources and checked).  Gimp 1.1.24
was the first to use GimpPlugInInfo.  Changing the version check from
1,1,20 to 1,1,24 makes everything work as it should.

After making the change, everything compiled and works wonderfully with
gimp 1.1.23.

If you haven't already, close the bug I opened (#116288) and, if possible,
make the above changes for print-4.0b3.

Thanks for a great printer driver for my old Epson Stylus Color!!
