(The real error occurred on a previous line you didn't show us -- maybe even far enough back that MacPorts didn't show you -- MacPorts only shows 30 lines of error by default.) Please clean the port, try again with the debug flag, and ideally file a ticket in the issue tracker with the output and send the ticket to gimp's maintainer.

Well, you didn't clean first, so that wasn't all the output. (I can tell because it went straight from Computing dependencies to Building, skipping the Fetching, Extracting, Patching, and Configuring phases.)

Please clean and try again and file the result as a ticket, because it'll be too much output to send to the mailing list. You might also want to compress the output before attaching it to the ticket.

sudo port clean gimp2
sudo port -d install gimp2 2>&1 | tee ~/Desktop/gimp2.txt
bzip2 ~/Desktop/gimp2.txt

Then attach gimp2.txt.bz2 on your desktop to the ticket.
