"Configure" tries to locate the necessary gimp header files. If it doesn't
find them, Gimp support is not compiled in. Some distributions are delivering
the gimp header files in a separate package, on SuSE it's named "gimp-devel".
After installation of the header files you have to run "configure", "make"
and "make install" again for the sane frontends. Watch the output of
"configure" for messages about gimp support.
