generic instructions are:
(as root) make install

You will certainly want to read the README and INSTALL files in the top level of the gimp source for detailed instructions.

The gimp is usually installed by default by (almost) all linux distro's (including redhat), try typing 'gimp' (without the quotes) on the command line when in X.
