first thing to do is to determine how to remove software via your
distributions package manager. debian uses "apt-get remove
package-name", redhat and kin use "rpm -r package-name". packages with
"-dev" in the name can cause two problems. they cause "make" to find
header files in the wrong place or a wrong package-name.pc file in the
i am going to warn you, i havent had trouble building gimp in a while,
so there might be several details here that are not exactly correct or
