Gimp in woody is 1.0, which do not have buildin xbm support. You have
to get the xbm plugin from gimp.org and compile it. see
/usr/share/doc/gimp/README.debian for how to install plugins. Gimp 1.2
should have buildin xbm support cuz I don't see xbm for 1.2. :)

I do not use gimp (much), but I do know it support Chinese input and
Chinese TTF. So we are all set.
