Tony, "Requested variant is not provided..." is not an error. It just
means that particular port doesnt have that (default) variant which
port trys to install if it is available. The "loop of errors" you are
seeing is just port working through the chains of dependancies and
dependencies of dependecies. gimp is a very complex installation with
many many dependencies. It will take many hours to install -- days if
you have a slow machine. Just let it run ......
