Why would it? Just compile using "./configure --prefix=/opt/gimp-2.8.x" (for
example) and install under a separate prefix. No need to install directly

We want a stable and consistent OS and user experience without having to reload/update everything after less than a year, and if I want to run a current version of Libre Office, there is no trouble.  I can do that.  If I want a current version of Firefox, I can do that.  But GiMP?  Nope!
