I've been following this tutorial, and I've found myself needing to compile makedev. However, when I try
ROOT=/mnt make install
in the source directory (makedev-20110824), I get:
gimptool-2.0 --install-script misc/xcf-png.scm make: gimptool-2.0: Command not found make: *** [misc/icon.png] Error 127
Why do I need gimptools to build makedev? Is there a way I can build it without gimptools and still expect to make it through the tutorial without much trouble?
Also in case it is relevant, I'm running a reasonably minimal Debian install on VirtualBox.
