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/Config.pm... ok
Checking if your kit is complete...
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:
make install # as root
