But reality is that only a few people do this. And finally we end up with threads like this where a program even does not start out of the box 'cause it's grabbing a wrong library.
As I said the wrapper script is not only a problem of the development version, you need this wrapper also with the stable version of The Gimp when installing it in a non-standard location. Take an average Windows user: usually he runs an install.exe, can store the application at any place on his harddisks and at the end of this procedure the program often is even launched ... Done. Sorry, but I stick with my opinion that the problem is caused by the installation procedure of The Gimp. It should install the wrapper by itself. And it could be done easily: create a wrapper template, during make or make install replace the path with the --prefix passed from configure, install it and print a message where the wrapper is so that the user know what to invoke.
