This (gimp) is a META port for the gimp2 which includes help and  
documentation, support for icns, jp2000 and RAW formats, content-aware  
rescaling Gutenprint and scanner frontends and even a nice theme  
(Nodoka). Mac OS X users also get a bundle, a "Show in  
Finder" menu and clipboard integration. (from port info gimp)
