I don't use Fedora, but it wasn't hard for me to discover that there
is indeed a package called gimp-devel for FC5:

The main purpose of the *.pc files is to include the right directories
and compiler options that are specific to your system in order to
ensure that the plug-ins can be built and installed correctly.  The
file gimpui-2.0.pc is automatically generated when GIMP is built and
there must be some package for your distribution that includes the
appropriate version of this file.  It is important to use the right
package for your distribution because each distribution is likely to
use slightly different directories or compiler options for building
and installing GIMP.  If you take some random *.pc file from another
distribution, you are likely to break things.  So please install the
correct package (gimp-devel-2.2.13) and it should work fine.

If gimpui-2.0.pc is not included in the gimp-devel package, then you
should report a bug in the Fedora bug tracker, because this is
problem in the distribution and not a GIMP bug.
