Building GIMP 2.6.9

GIMP 2.6.9 has been released by the upstream developers. While -Current hasn't been officially started yet, it would take some time before this version coming up in -Current, so i tried to compile it manually using SlackBuild script found on source/ directory on Slackware mirrors (i used OSUOSL)

One note if you want to build GIMP 2.6.9 is that you will not require any libpng patch anymore, since it has been included in the source, so remove the following line:
zcat $CWD/gimp.png14.diff.gz | patch -p1 --verbose || exit 1

Don't forget to update the version number and build number and you are ready to compile GIMP 2.6.9 Yahoo

PS: It would take some time to build, so do something else Rolling
