    If you're installing gimp from RPM you need to install the gimp-devel
    package as well -- contains the gimp-config script and various header

    However with 0.68 autodetection of gimp fails and using the heavy-mob
    method (--with-gimp-prefix=/usr --enable-gimp --disable-gimptest) fails to
    link with the folowing error:
    gcc -L/usr/lib -o xsane xsane-back-gtk.o xsane-front-gtk.o xsane-gamma.o
    xsane-preview.o xsane-rc-io.o xsane-device-preferences.o
    xsane-preferences.o xsane-setup.o xsane-save.o xsane-scan.o xsane-icons.o
