I just upgraded my Redhat installation from 7.1 to 7.2, and the first time
I started Gimp 1.2.1 it put out a long series of "Can't load" and
"compilation aborted" messages. The GUI comes up OK, but it looks as if a
lot of the plugins didn't load.
I then installed Gimp 1.2.3 via the config/make/make install route from
/usr/local/src/gimp-1.2.3, and it produces the same result.
