thought it was time to rename the thread since I have gone past
the problems with pygtk.

I had a successful cvs/compile/install cycle on Gimp stable. Then
I thought I would try Gimp unstable, or bleeding edge. I
followed the instructions for CVS of Gimp stable with one
modification (see below)

I got a working program but this error message stopped the
Making all in tips

-c ../../po-tips/.intltool-merge-cachemake

Nevertheless I was able to do a make install, halting at the
same spot with the same message. 

Earlier in my journey had complained about an
obsolete intltool so I installed version 32 of that package.

BTW I switched from stable cvs to unstable by deleting the
entire ~/cvs/gimp subdirectory and using the command
cvs checkout -r HEAD gimp

I used this technique to avoid conflicts between versions.
The initial splash screen for the resulting Gimp says:
Pixeldumper Developers Release 2.3

but the window displayed when I click help>about still says
version 2.2.9 

If anything else comes up of interest I will report back.
