thank you for sticking with it.  i do not even know how to strip this
email, i left it in tact.

try editing this script to use /opt/gnome instead of /usr/local :

then type "source gimpenv" before "perl Makefile.PL"

btw, you seem to have a handle on some *nix things that i don't.  i
still fumble around when trying to use echo.  it is one of the problems
that happens when you get things working and they work so well for so

again, thank you for your persistence.
