I've recently tried to compile Gimp 1.1.29 on my RedHat 7 system, with no
success. The compilation fails and it gives the following error:

gcc -shared  <a lot of
*.lo> -L/usr/lib -lglib -lm -lc  -Wl,-soname -Wl,libgimp-1.1.so.30 -o
/usr/bin/ld:gimpcolorspace.lo: file format not recognized; treating as
linker script
/usr/bin/ld:gimpcolorspace.lo:2: parse error
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [libgimp.la] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/gimp-1.1.30/libgimp'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/gimp-1.1.30'
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2

 I attach the file gimpcolorspace.lo that causes the error. I guessed that,
since my redhat has several problems also with other builds, it was a
problem of 1.1.29, and it would have been fixed later on... Today I
downloaded 1.1.30, hoping it compiled; but it gives the same, identical
error. How can I do? Has the file a wrong content? I got 1.1.29 patching it
successively since 1.1.13, so maybe some patch could be faulty... should I
download the complete source? It's so big! ;)
 thanks a lot,
  Mano :)
