With the Gimp 2.0 I need to use, as I already did under gimp 1.2.3, some
useful perl plug-ins I wrote.
>From www.gimp.org I have installed the linux debian testing packages contributed
for gimp 2.0.2 including the gimp-perl 2.0.1 deb package which turns out
not to include any of the wanted *.pm perl module files.
Therefore I downloaded from cpan the gimp 2.0 perl module but when I try
to compile it by means of "perl Makefile.PL" an error pops up saying that
it cannot find the gimp executable (present, of course, under /usr/bin
both as gimp-2.0 and @gimp)
checking for GIMP - version >= 2.0.0... no
*** Could not run GIMP test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GIMP was incorrectly installed

configure: error: ** unable to find gimp, make sure it's in your path (version
Do you know if there's anything broken with these packages?
