I tried your solution and it didn't work.

I'm running Suse 8.2 and I'm using apt-get to update my installed rpms. If I 
try to install the gimp1.3.17 that's available at usr.local.org it insists 
that I have to remove sane and xsane. Thus making it impossible for me to use 
my scanner. So the binary update is out at the moment.

I've never had any problem compiling and usin the unstable versions of gimp 
before. And I've been using Gimp for ages.
