No application when installing gimp2

Thanks for your hint about the gimp-app port. I installed this port  
and now there's the gimp application in the macports folder.

Unfortunately when starting gimp (double click on the application)  
will crash after some seconds. The menu and the tools are visible for  
some seconds and then gimp crashes. As well I noticed another window  
starting with gimp which has the name "gimp-2.6" in the dock, this  
window will abort as well.

Do you have any idea what's wrong here?
