Does the Gimp have some kind of make fetish I don't get.. er, grok? I must be missing something rude, cause I can't even make the stable Gimp!

I'm running Redhat 6.1, and have installed perl 5.6, glib-1.2.8, gtk+-1.2.8, and Gtk-Perl-0.6123 from sources downloaded from and Am I missing a package?

I'm just trying to install the stable version at this point, gimp-1.0.4. (Hope some of you gimpheads remember that one. )

Configure did have a problem finding gtk-config; but a symlink seemed to fix that. Otherwise, everything seemed fine to my ignorant soul until make exited with the following flourish:

Making all in /home/amarel/a
/bin/sh: /home/amarel/a: No such file or directory
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/amarel/dl/v/x86/gimp/gimp-1.0.4/plug-ins'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/amarel/dl/v/x86/gimp/gimp-1.0.4'
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2

I'm 'amarel', and '/home/amarel' is my home; but what the g*mp is that 'a' about?

Gone through the archives to no avail, and would much appreciate any insight.
