I'd suggest setting up Travis and using CI with your project repo to ensure
people can start from a clean version of at least Ubuntu with a fair chance
it will work. The various packages and versions in the Travis config would
provide a great guide on dependencies.

Thanks for the suggestion, Ed! I shall try that.

This was now implemented: -
thanks. It took me half a day, and I ended up skipping the build of gimp
git master itself (due to the fact it required some newer deps). It inspired a
feature in gimpgitbuild 0.8.0 .

Thanks again and it built right to the end of gimp. But;

I suspect the following is relevant only to Ubuntu-19.10;

To get past libmypaint build not finding automake, I needed to;

 a.  Remove the symbolic links /etc/alternatives/automake and /etc/alternatives/aclocal
     (the /etc/alternatves linked back to the 1.16 versions in /usr/bin
 b.  Copy automake-1.16 and aclocal-1.16 to 1.13 version
 c.  link the 1.13 versions to automake and aclocal

There is probably an easier way to do this. However "it worked"

Gimp then built to "Success" but running the app,

# apps/graphics/gimp-devel/bin/gimp-2.99: error while loading shared libraries: cannot 
open shared object file: No such file or directory

Vaguely remember having to set up some environment variable and will later try;

  # export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/owen/apps/graphics/gimp-devel/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

but maybe that needs to be added to the 0.8.0 version
