This might sound stupid, but do you have pygtk, ie, what is in

isn't the problem.
I have /usr/lib64/pygtk/2.0, which is the April 01, 2011 pygtk2-2.24.0

But it is not in /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages.
There's LOTS of stuff there, the only pyg is pygment.

I made a softlink in sitepackages back to pygtk; same result.
Then I recursively copied /usr/lib64/pygtk to /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages; same result.
config.log explains pygtk-2.0.pc is missing --
"Perhaps you should add the directory containing `pygtk-2.0.pc'"

The statement is true.
However, no directory in my system contains that specific configuration file.
I have so far not figured out precisely how to create a configuration file.
Perhaps someone could show me an example?
Please forgive this string of messages, which I think may be related to the 'git problem' thread

Absent a response, I hand-built (with considerable reluctance) a pygtk-2.0.pc and put it in my configuration path:
My pygtk-2.0.pc is


    Name: pygtk2
    Description: Extension module for Python for GTK+-2
    Version: 2.24.0

This was progress, b/c I now proceed to this error:
    configure: error:
    *** Could not find pygtk-codegen-2.0 script.
Searching on-line, I find this information from an unrelated source ( "If "pygtk-codegen-2.0" is deprecated, then upstream scripts that call it should be updated to call "pygobject-codegen-2.0".

It is undoubtedly clear to the awesome GIMP developers - as it is clear to me - that I'm over my head here.

Please advise me - would you prefer I simply shut up or is there a path you can recommend?
