hi, david, thanks for your prompt (and informative) response. much appreciated..

1) i did a little digging and found out that though it comes with the gimp source distribution, the gimp-remote executable program has been missing for some time from the redhat rpms. this omission is a bug, and though still present in redhat 8.0 (gimp-1.2.3-9 rpm), was originally filed for redhat 7.0 in april of 2001: (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=35493)

2) i also agree with you: gimp-remote should be in some faq. however, i found no mention of it in the following places:

gimp home page (http://www.rru.com/~meo/gimp/faq-user.html).

RRU tutorial (http://www.rru.com/~meo/gimp/Tutorial/) listed on the gimp site at http://www.rru.com/~meo/gimp/

gimp savvy book web companion site (http://www.gimp-savvy.com)

joshua´s GIMP Guide (http://jgo.local.net/GimpGuide/)

so it sounds like a good potential addition (though i don´t know how frequently this question is actually asked)..

3) i downloaded the gimp source tarball and commenced le grande compilé, slippiing on xjpeg custard, which wanted (and could not find) jpeglib.h ..

so before i go around chasing jpeg (and other) libraries, does anyone have a spare gimp-remote binary that works on the latest gtk+/gcc/rh8.0? i´d be most grateful, as that would work for me until redhat fixes the rpm.
