Arrow gimp (1.3.21) and gimp-perl - need help installing gimp-perl


I'm now using the newest available gimp off the slackware site (actually off a mirror).

I've just found a nice function -> slicing images, through gimp guides and images->transform->guillotine.

well, this works just fine. BUT I've heard of Perl-o-Tine, which does all the saving in a desired format and its compression (jpg) for me - wow, sounds like a really cool tool. now I've downloaded the Gimp off...: and now I'm stuck.

please.... someone..... have mercy with my poor heart.... I have no hair anymore... I've gone crazy...

this is what I get:
alex@smartdust:~/compilations/Gimp-1.211$ perl Makefile.PL 
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for gimp... (cached) /usr/bin/gimp
checking for gimptool... (cached) no
checking for GIMP - version >= 1.0.4... no
*** The gimptool script installed by GIMP could not be found
*** If GIMP was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GIMPTOOL environment variable to the
*** full path to gimptool.
configure: warning: ** unable to find gimp
./configure: line 1: no: command not found

now invoking perl to complete the configuration...
+ exec /usr/bin/perl Makefile.PL --writemakefile PREFIX=/usr

FATAL: unable to deduce plugindir from gimptool script
