Aha.  OK, good to know.

I think she tried using the latest, but it was hard to build
for other reasons.  I'd say just comment gimp out
of the benchmark script.

(A good candidate replacement might be garnome,
which explicitly includes all dependencies.
It might be *too* big, though... it takes six hours to build
without distcc.)
