If you use --prefix=/opt maybe it can't find ../lib/pkgconfig.
That is where gimp goes looking for babl and gegl version.
I wrote about compiling from git a while ago.http://www.gimpchat.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=1261
No I think if that were the case it'd throw and error already at .configure I think? I've set the environment vars and compiled babl + gegl in the correct directory (I compiled both with --prefix=/opt/goat) and then configured gimp with the same prefix, it configured fine but when I try to make I get errors... I'll have to try to run it again to see what the errors are exactly.

If you use "git clone", you clone the whole git repository. There are all versions (Branches) included.
Yeah that's what confused me about git at first too... but it's actually pretty neat when you get used to it.
