I had an issue with "port install gimp2 no_python" :
the dependency gail failed to build with : "gdk/gdkx.h : no such file  
or directory".
So I    "port clean gail"    and then    "port install gail  
+quartz"      and now it's ok :-)

By the way, why must we remove python support to build it without  
x11 ? I'm sure there are a lot of useful python plugins for Gimp.
