Error compiling GIMP on Ubuntu 17.10
Hi folks!

I am following this tutorial using Ubuntu 17.10: When I try to compile GIMP using the following code:

    cd $SRC_DIR/gimp
    ./ --prefix=$PREFIX --with-gimpdir=$HOME/code/gimpdefault/install/config --disable-gtk-doc

I get the following error:

    WARNING: GCC 7.2.0 has a serious bug affecting GEGL/GIMP. We advise
             against using this version of the compiler (previous and
             further versions are fine).

    Error: GIMP configuration failed.

      - Error: missing dependency libmypaint >= 1.3.0

    See the file 'INSTALL' for more help.

    Configure failed or did not finish!

Any idea what to do solve this problem?

ps: I have used "export GIO_EXTRA_MODULES=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gio/modules" since this is a Ubuntu (debian-based) system. I have also installed libmypaint by doing:

    cd $SRC_DIR/libmypaint
    ./ --prefix=$PREFIX
    ./configure --prefix=$PREFIX
    make -j3 && make -j3 install
When it says "missing dependencies: xxxx" it means the header files, so this means to install some xxxx-dev package. I'm not sure that "make install" publishes the header files.
