Actually that should not be the problem... (I think ;)
I build it with the --enable-gimpdir= flag set like this

------------
#!/bin/sh

date |tee build-start; ./configure --prefix=/opt/gimp/gimp-1.1.28 \
--enable-gimpdir=.gimp-1.1.28 |tee configure.out; \
make |tee make.out; date |tee build-end; \
make install |tee make.install.out;\
echo "build start time"; cat build-start; \
echo "build end time "; cat build-end
-------------

just to bee sure i tested removing the ~user/.gimp-1.1
as you suggested and I still had the problem...
more details.
the splash screen hangs with the subtitle
Plug-ins
and the path
/opt/gimp/gimp-1.1.28/lib/gimp/1.1/plug-ins/script-fu

another interesting thing that happens is.....
when I ctrl-C the app I get the following strange output
---------
[jsheffie@kelly bin]$ ./gimp
^[[A./gimp terminated: Interrupt
/opt/gimp/gimp-1.1.28/lib/gimp/1.1/plug-ins/animate_cells terminated:
Interrupt
---------------
animate_cells...??
