gimp fails to rebuild on a rawhide system

Description of problem:
error: Failed build dependencies:
xorg-x11-devel is needed by gimp-2.2.13-1.i386
the gimp spec file relies on either %fedora or %redhat being set in the build
system which uses modular X for sufficiently high values of either %fedora or
%redhat. You can override the automatism by using "--with modular_x" on the
rpmbuild command line. Do you think I should change that, so it assumes modular
X by default?
RHEL-3 is our only release where you still might need to update gimp and build
with a monolithic X. All other supported releases have modular X, so I think
it's save to set that as default. Just remember to change that for the
(unlikely) case that you have to do an gimp erratum for RHEL-3.
Well, that's no issue because RHEL-3 has its own spec file which is very
different (gimp version 1.2.3) so I won't be tempted to just copy over stuff
from Rawhide ;-). I've checked in the changed defaults (lcms would also depend
on %fedora or %redhat), but won't build a package with this change as we're
bound to have some mass rebuilds at some point.
