 If ./configure said it's ok, then it's ok. Don't be afraid. Enjoy
your new gimp :)

 You should at least run yum update gtk2* to avoid severe speed
problems when opening an image. yum will download the relevant binary
rpms from redhat with all their dependencies and install them. yum
update gimp-* will install the latest redhat update for gimp (2.2.4,
but I guess soon there will be a 2.2.6 there...). With yum you can
keep your system updated and I advise you to do so.

 yum update will install the relevant updates (issued by redhat) for
your machine. It will work only if you are root.
