What is the rest of the crash log?  I want to see the path to  

What is the output of:

otool -L /opt/local/bin/gimp

You might also want to run this to debug further:

cd /opt/local/lib
for f in *dylib; do otool -L $f | grep -q /usr/X11 && echo $f; done
for f in *.la; do grep -q /usr/X11 $f && echo $f; done
cd /opt/local/bin
for f in *; do otool -L $f | grep -q /usr/X11 && echo $f; done

Those should produce NO hits.  If any file is lister, it is linking  
against the wrong X11 libraries (which is what I suspect your problem  
is).  If that's the case, you need to reinstall those libraries.  You  
probably did an 'install' without an 'upgrade outdated' first.
