Don't show the first-time wizard

It is really out-of-place, compared to other desktop applications, and annoying.
The consensus of the desktop team is that we would be better off without it.
Luckily, Ubuntu already has a patch for this:

If we apply this, we should also lobby upstream to nuke the wizard, or at
least make it a compile-time option.
The wizard is already nuked upstream in gimp-2.3.x which I'm considering for
inclusion in devel anyway as 2.4 is likely to be ready within the F8 timeframe.
I've just built 2.4.0-rc1 for Rawhide which doesn't have the first-time wizard.
Thanks, very cool
