Description of problem:
Currently, gimp is built with ./configure --disable-perl
It would be nice to have perl support in a subpackage, like gimp-perl
for example.

I have a perl script doing "use Gimp" in a package I maintain
(showimg), and it causes an unresolvable dependancy.

The Perl extension isn't part of the gimp package anymore (since 2.0).
it is now maintained separately (grab it at
ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/plug-ins/v2.0/perl) and needs perl-Gtk2 as
well. You might want to submit these to Fedora Extras/fedora.us for
eventual inclusion.
