One of GIMP's dependencies was built against an older version of json-c. Probably libmypaint, but you can find out using lddtree. If you've built that dependency yourself as well (which is likely, otherwise we'd be hearing a lot more about it :) you need to rebuild it.

Yeah, under Fedora 27, I had to compile libmypaint from source to get GIMP from GIT to build. Forgot all about it... Rebuilding now, having made the appropriate changes to get the non-F30 version of libmypaint out of the way. We'll see what happens.

The result is that the Fedora 30 version of GIMP starts perfectly. The version from GIT, recompiled following a "make distclean", does not work. It crashes with the same error.
