I should point out that installing gimp with MacPorts is an enormous endeavor, with almost 200 dependencies. This will take a lot of time to build, and I don't know if every one of these ports is in working order at this point in time. There is a standalone gimp binary for Mac OS X you can download which would probably be a lot simpler and less error-prone.

I am the maintainer of ImageMagick in MacPorts, I keep it up to date, I use it, it works great as far as I can tell. I can totally recommend using MacPorts to install ImageMagick. It has only 40 dependencies.

I haven't tried gnumeric or gdl. Gnumeric has about 140 dependencies and gdl has about 100.

There is of course overlap between these; many of the 40 dependencies you install to get ImageMagick are the same ones you need for gimp2 for example.
