Ximian doesn't, compiling does. I thought we were talking about that.
It's why I didn't compile but got the Ximian package. It required gimp
and a few new files. That was it.

Then why did I get a notice about having to upgade my perl library and
if you look at the gimp perl deb source, it does indeed require woody's
version of perl and not potato. I don't get it, becaue if that was the
case, how come Ximian got it up and running on potato?
