Most everything's easy once you know what to do and how to do it.

Learning what to do and how to do it is the hard part.

1) make sure you have libgimp-dev installed from your distribution.  it
might also be called gimp-dev.

"gimp-devel" was the only package which came up as uninstalled when I queried YaST for "gimp". So I installed it.

2) get the tarball and as a user inflate it and cd into that new
directory.

Did that 3 days ago.

3) as a user only (not as root) type "perl Makefile.PL". once that is
completed and successful, type "make".

Once that is completed and successful is the catch here.

I'm still getting the same problem I had before I installed "gimp-devel".

What now?
