(en) To create web page buttons style Aqua Bou - For The Gimp 2.4.
This version is for Gimp 2.4 or higher (with Tiny Scheme interpreter).
For The Gimp 2.2 or lower version (which uses the SIOD Scheme interpreter), I suggest you use the Aqua bou version 2.2 .
Once installed, restart the Gimp and access the menu: File -> Create -> Web Page Themes -> Aqua Bou -> ...
Note 1/10/2012: If one uses an IDE such as Code::Blocks (www.codeblocks.org), SHAPEFS should be mostly platform independent, much like GIMP itself. Sincere apologies to any users attempting to use this plug-in. Life intervened between the time I created this and today. I'll take your advise and insure that any future versions come with the correct configure scripts as with other Linux source packages.
