Happily  I seem to have stumbled into the same situation. I compiled from one 
master partition (Slack 11) and run in an older one.  /usr/local is the same 
in each (same partition linked into the tree.)  Gimp 2.3.12 now runs just 
fine. Why I don't know. It won't run using the master partition in which it 
was compiled. I did have to upgrade glib.

In answer to your questions here are the results:

file /usr/local/gimp-2.3/bin/gimp-2.3
/usr/local/gimp-2.3/bin/gimp-2.3: cannot open 
`/usr/local/gimp-2.3/bin/gimp-2.3' (No such file or directory)

No wrappers installed. 

Go figure.  Hey, I have a working Gimp of recent vintage. I am not touching a 
thing. And I won't upgrade to Slack 11.x until it has Gimp 2.4.x included. 
Don't mess with success. 

My executable is /usr/local/bin/gimp-2.3. It yields two errors on startup:
/usr/local/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/poppler: error while loading shared 
libraries: libpoppler-glib.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file 
or directory

(gimp-2.3:2838): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: gimp-2.3: wire_read(): error
but it seems to run OK.
