Compiling gimp 2.3.7: configure can't find gtk2+2.8.12
I am trying to compile the latest development release of Gimp, v2.3.7 under FC4. In order to do so, I also had to compile a number of dependencies, notably the latest gtk2+ source, v2.8.12. But I keep getting this error message from ./configure:
Yes, I added /usr/local to /etc/ld.so.conf.
Yes, I run sudo ldconfig after installing the libraries.
What perplexes me is that I was able to install gtk2 2.8.12 in /usr/local and compile gimp 2.3.7 without any problem under Ubuntu (Breezy), without having to uninstall the older versions of gtk2 and gimp, so in theory it is possible.
Suggestions on how to get Gimp 2.3.7 running here most welcome.
Search for; gtk2-2.8.12*.rpm (you might need the gtk2-devel package also)

You will need to build from the source rpm package and you will need gtk-doc installed also in order to build the binaries.
I finally succeeded in getting Gimp 2.3.7 to compile. The main problem turned out be some obsolete .pc files in /usr/lib/pkgconfig related to some gtk2 dependencies, namely atk, glib, cairo, and pango, which I had installed in /usr/local. When I reversed the order of pkgconfig's search path:
For some reason, I wasn't able to find up-to-date RPMs for the dependencies of the newer gtk2 RPM lenard referred to.
