    Hi Petter,

    that is a side-effect of the option "--disable-guis" that turns off
    graphical user interfaces (guis).

    I will add a warning when disable-guis is not set but gtk is not found.

    Hi Petter,

    I do not understand what you are talking about.
    The test works correct for me:

    checking for strncasecmp... yes
    checking for sane-config... /usr/local/bin/sane-config
    checking for SANE - version >= 1.0.0... yes
    checking for gtk-config... /usr/local/bin/gtk-config
    checking for GTK - version >= 0.99.13... yes
    checking for libgimp/gimp.h... yes
    checking for libgimp/gimpfeatures.h... yes
    updating cache ./config.cache
    creating ./config.status
