Even when I maintain the build system at there's regularly a

GIMP developers use Debian Testing, with the assumption that is anything
is present there, then a GIMP build can require it.

A build based on Debian Jessie, currently aka Debian Stable, will divert
from that over time, and might not even contain some of the required
dependencies. Due to the recent release of Jessie, this is not very
noticeable yet.

A moving target like Debian Testing is probably a less than optimal
building block for a vagrant-based approach.
