Ok, everyone, thanks for the thoughts and help, I have 2.2.2 compiled 
and working nicely on SuSE 9.2 now!  Seems my compile problem was a bad 
libgsf file/s, so took care of that and Gimp went nicely.  Nice new 
SuSE rpms built now and I'll happily provide them to anyone needing 
them, if that's ok with the developers?

From info I got in my quest to get this worked out, I was told there was 
a bug, of this nature, in the 2.0.4 Gimp files and was reported as 
such.  No matter though, 2.2.2 is always better to have!  Thanks to 
everyone and especially the Gimp contributors/developers for such great
