Sorry for the false alarm.  Here is the EXACT warning message I get:

invoking perl for configuration...
checking for PDL support... yes
checking for PDL include path... -I/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i586-linux/PDL/Core
checking for PDL typemap... /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i586-linux/PDL/Core/typemap.pdl

NOTICE: Parse::RecDescent not found, scm2perl, the Scheme->Perl
        translator, will not work. This is normally not a problem, since
        it is quite unimportant for most people.

building embedded perl module... no
writing Gimp/ ok
Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good

So the Scheme to Perl translator is what will NOT work and Scheme support WILL work.   Sorry for misleading you.... :)

What's this about not having Parse::RecDescent preventing Scheme from
working?  Can someone clue me in?

FYI, Parse::RecDescent can be automagically installed using
the following one-liner:

   perl -MCPAN -e 'install Parse::RecDescent'

If you want to manually install it, it can be downloaded from:

and installation is just a matter of untarring it and doing:

   perl *PL
   make test
   make install    # as root
