Installing Ximian doesn't involve upgrading perl. If you want to see what
it does upgrade, look at their Packages.gz. Its basically Gtk+, the Gnome
libs, and some Gnome apps.

You should be able to compile Gimp 1.2 on Potato by getting Gtk+ 1.2.8
from someplace - the Ximian libgtk1.2 and libglib1.2 packages should
install without requiring anything else from Ximian. Everything else
needed for building Gimp 1.2 is available in Potato.
