#57842: gimp @2.10.8_0 unable to open jpeg files due to crashing file-jpeg plug-in

 Attempts to open JPEG files in Gimp 2.10.8 results in an error message.

 Running "gimp-console --verbose My_Image.JPG" results in the following

 libc++abi.dylib: terminating with uncaught exception of type
 Exiv2::BasicError<char>: No namespace info available for XMP prefix
 /opt/local/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/file-jpeg/file-jpeg: fatal error: Abort
 trap: 6
 gimp-console: LibGimpBase-WARNING: gimp-console: gimp_wire_read(): error
 Terminating plug-in: '/opt/local/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/file-jpeg/file-
 GIMP-Error: Plug-in crashed: "file-jpeg"

 The dying plug-in may have messed up GIMP's internal state. You may want
 to save your images and restart GIMP to be on the safe side.

 Searching Google results in a closed bug report from gimp:


 which links back to a commit in MacPorts exiv2 PortFile commit


 Both gimp2 and exiv2 compile file without error.  Attempted to force
 uninstall and reinstall of both gimp and exiv2.

 Using latest build of MacPort from git on MacBook running Mojave with
 exiv2 @0.27_0, gimp @2.10.8_0, gimp2 @2.10.8_2+python27, and gimp-app
