Compiling print gimp with gcc


I've downloaded gimp print 4.2.7, the ReadMe file says the code is for Castle c compiler, but gcc can be used. At the moment it's the '!Make' file that's holding me back, I don't quite know how to change it so it's gcc friendly. Have any of you undertaken the task of compiling this with gcc? If yes, how, if not, why not? So many questions...... cheers, Dom.

take a look at this, it's for 4.2.6 but should be what you want ( disregard all the package making stuff at the bottom).

Hello, thanks very much for your prompt reply! I have linux redhat, will that make a difference?
I'm completely ignorant when it comes to this sort of thing, I recognise a few things in that code you directed me to,
but what do I do with it? There should be a forum for 'Completely, totally, brand new newbie'!! Cheers, Dom.

./configure --prefix=/usr \
--infodir=/usr/info \
--with-ijs \
--with-cups \
--without-gimp \
--without-samples \
--without-user-guide \
--enable-escputil \
--disable-static \
--disable-nls \
make
make install

just this part - you might need to modify it depending on what you have installed on your system ( dont pass cups or ijs if you don't have them or if you want the samples change that line to --with-samples, etc..).
