Ok. Got it from the ftp.

WARNING: unable to use PDL (the perl data language). This means that
         normal pixel access is non-functional. Unless you plan to use
         Tile/PixelRgn functions together with PDL, this is harmless. The
         plug-ins using PDL, however, will NOT WORK and you can NO LONGER
         install PDL later. You can get PDL from any CPAN mirror.

checking for PDL support... no

NOTICE:  unable to use the Perl-Gtk2 interface. Many features (like
         Gimp::Fu) rely on this extension. You can build without it (and
         many scripts will be disabled or run with reduced functionality
         only), but it's better to install it.  If you do install it,
         version 1.0 or higher is required; you can get it from
         http://gtk2-perl.sourceforge.net/ or any CPAN mirror.

writing Gimp/Config.pm... ok

What puzzles me is:
"WARNING: unable to use PDL (the perl data language) ... You can get PDL from 
any CPAN mirror."
"use'ing Gimp::PDL is no longer necessary, please remove it!"

That is a very odd conflict of directives!

I am getting a wee bit fed up with trying to compile all this.
The prospect of getting into PS just to get the things i want to use seems 
closer and closer.

Gimp seems to be a VERY difficult piece of software to get going from scratch 
if you are a dabbling neewbie in compiling/programming
Far to many depends that arent clearly stated.
I need gazillion libs installed and zonks of perl utils to even THINK of 
starting a compilation.
And frankly.. It suck!
