Comment (by shelleyp at burningbird.net):

 The link provided part of the solution, but eventually what I had to do
 was find the dependencies of several libraries and ended up loading the
 lower, discrete libraries, first, before the higher up ones like GIMP.
 Took several hours but that seems to have worked.

 Fortunately, I'm a programmer and understand about build dependencies.
 I've recommended MacPorts to others for loading GIMP, UFRAW, and so on,
 but there's no way that non-programmers will be able to work through all
 the problems. Too bad, too.

 So, the issue was resolved.
