I strongly suggest you don't compile GIMP from source then but use a
precompiled binary. http://xach.com/ has RPMs for RedHat 9.0.
Unfortunately not 2.0.1 yet but you could at least install all the
dependencies from there and compile only GIMP. That will save you some
major troubles. Getting all the dependencies compiled from source
requires a good deal of experience building software from source.

It's the patch to update gimp-2.0.0 to gimp-2.0.1. Useful for people
who downloaded gimp-2.0.0 earlier.
