 This turns out to have been fallout from incomplete purging of
 "/usr/lib/*".  "openexr", "ilmbase", and "gegl" all
 insisted on on linking with "" (*.7.4) which was still
 lurking in "/usr/lib".
 Eliminating the last vestiges of* and rebuilding the
 above packages allowed the build of "gimp" to succeed.
 So, ultimately a local problem.  Although old libraries are not removed
 on major version bumps to avoid breaking existing/legacy applications,
 sometimes it causes problems like this.
 I had a similar issue with* vs *.9* in -current, so I
 re-checked netbsd-8 and found the same issue.  Even more with current,
 some libraries in "xbase" weren't rebuilt (update build) so were
 either causing version conflicts or later undefined references.
 To avoid the delay of a non-update build, I hunted down the objdirs
 and nuked them to force a rebuild.
