Hm, thanks David, but it isn't so easy, because the package uses 
pkg-config too. So I tried to alter the Makefile by defining the path to 
the new gimptool and adding 
--define-variable=prefix=/home/peter/install/gimp to the pkg-config 
command to tell it where to search for libraries, but then the make 
failed with LOTS of errors like this:
error: expected ')' before '*' token
