Full error log, please. – Sathya Dec 4 '10 at 4:25

You have to compile git version of gegl and babl:

$ git clone git://
$ git clone git://

If you are getting this error while compiling babl:

/home/arzeth/compile/babl/babl/babl-types.h:23:2: error: #error "babl-version.h must not be included directly, include babl.h instead."

then remove these lines in those files:

#error "babl-version.h must not be included directly, include babl.h instead."
