DESCRIPTION
       gimptool-2.0 is a tool that can, among other things, build plug-ins or
       scripts and install them if they are distributed in one source file.

       gimptool-2.0 can also be used by programs that need to know what
       libraries and include-paths GIMP was compiled with. This is especially
       useful in Makefiles.



OPTIONS
       gimptool-2.0 accepts the following options:

       --version
               Print the currently installed version of GIMP on the standard
               output.

       --help  Print out the help blurb, showing commonly used commandline
               options.

       --quiet Run quietly without echoing any of the build commands.

       --silent
               Run silently without echoing any of the build commands. Same as
               --quiet.

       -n      Test mode. Print the commands but don't actually execute them.
               Useful for making dry runs for testing.

       --just-print
               Test mode. Print the commands but don't actually execute them.
               Same as -n.

       --dry-run
               Test mode. Print the commands but don't actually execute them.
               Same as -n.

       --recon Test mode. Print the commands but don't actually execute them.
               Same as -n.

       --prefix=PREFIX
               If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation prefix
               that GIMP was built with when computing the output for the
               --cflags and --libs options. This option is also used for the
               exec prefix if --exec-prefix was not specified. This option
               must be specified before any --libs or --cflags options.

       --exec-prefix=PREFIX
               If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation exec
               prefix that GIMP was built with when computing the output for
               the --cflags and --libs options. This option must be specified
               before any --libs or --cflags options.



ENVIRONMENT
       CC      to get the name of the desired C compiler.

       CFLAGS  to get the preferred flags to pass to the C compiler for plug-
               in building.

       DESTDIR to add a prefix to the install/uninstall path.

       LDFLAGS to get the preferred flags for passing to the linker.

       LIBS    for passing extra libs that may be needed in the build process.
               For example, LIBS=-lintl .

       PKG_CONFIG
               to get the location of the pkg-config program used to determine
               details about your glib, pango and gtk+ installation.
