I downloaded 3.17 and compiled. It blew up on Slackware 9 but on 
Gentoo it would compile if I eliminated printing. It could not find 
gimp-print although it was clearly there. I submitted a bug report on 
the Slackware failure.  The other problem (printing) is trivial for 
my use.  A relative who runs Red Hat also had a problem installing 
Gimp 1.3.17 with relation to Gimp-print. 

So much for the status report. Now here is my question. The release 
notes mention a "trivial" RGB to CMYK conversion function. However I 
could not find the function on the menus. If it is a plug in then I 
didn't get it. This as everyone knows by now a critical issue for the 
book cover application. Printers expect CMYK and will be unhappy (or 
charge extra) if they get RGB instead.
