it needs gimptool.  on debian, this is provided by libgimp-dev.  they
split out the development packages so that (in theory) you can build
your own or use theirs.  the compiler needs to see gimptool for gimp and
the files ending in .h and .la for other software -- maybe more....

sorry, i forgot that part in the instructions.
