Well, I went back and recompiled babl, gegl and gimp from scratch, using 
Bruce's suggestion of using --disable-docs to configure gegl, and 
removing the hack links in /usr/include: babl -> babl-0.1 and gegl -> 
gegl-0.2. Then everything worked. And gegl, this time, constructed a 
proper pkg-config file, "gegl-02.pc" which gimp was obviously happy 
with. I don't fully understand this.
