    Do you have package libgimp-dev (or libgimp1.2-dev, although that
    might not be in Debian "potato") installed? It is needed for compiling
    GIMP plugins.

    That header is indeed in libglib1.2-dev, but looks like its locatation
    (/usr/lib/glib/include/) isn't made know to the compiler for some odd
