That is certainly an improvement over searching the web. But go to 
the top of this thread and see the turmoil one user went through 
trying to get Gimp going.

The version that matches the version of Gimp in the tarball is what 
should be included IMO.  Presumably that is the version that is on 
gimp.org now.  If e.g. Slackware can prepackage Gimp with all the 
required libraries it seems to me that the Gimp folks could do the 
same. But I guess we will have to disagree on this.
