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.

It took over a day on my machine just to build GCC 4.3. Gimp itself
was fast in comparison :-).

Why does it build 5 different versions of docbook?
