I would do      ./configure --help 

and have a good read. Then I would build it in /opt rather than mess up your home 
directory. So do configure like this

./configure --prefix=/opt (plus any other options you want)

Then su to root

make install

Then you will end up with all the libraries and binaries in /opt

Also a .gimp-2.1 directory will be created in your home directory that will contail 
all the brushes and gradients etc like in your current .gimp-2.0 directory (or 

To start your gimp-2.1, you will need to issue


Try that and see what happens.
