Comment (by kencu):

 The issue here really isn't with `gimp`, of course; any time a relatively
 new version of `clang` builds objects on `10.5`, the stock version of `nm`
 will barf on them.

 If there was only some way we could force the `cctools` version of `nm` to
 be used based on the `clang` version used to build objects, we could fix
 all the ports at once. In the meantime, we have to piecemeal them one by
 one as they come up.

 At present, it appears that the `nm` used on `10.6.8` is new enough to
 handle things, but no doubt there will come a day when that changes and we
 need to force a newer `nm` there as well.

 If you're a bit of a hacker, you can just change `/usr/bin/nm` to be the
 `cctools` version with a symlink (saving the original, of course) and then
 you're good to go forever, but for that, you need to know what you're
 doing and what you did.
