I've sorted this out by issuing "port upgrade outdated". The solution
would not be ideal for users who did not want to change from the
current ports, but for me upgrading them all was no problem. Gimp
installed fine after this.

New subscriber here. I recently deleted some image folders (in
/opt/local/var/macports/software/) upon advice in a macports bug
report, and find that it has somewhat borked my macports install. I
have documented everything I have tried in this post:
I am really keen to fix this without reinstalling macports entirely.
In fact I went to the uninstall part of the macports manual, and it
recommended that uninstalling is rarely necessary, and that I should
ask for help first. So, here I am! Any ideas or suggestions gratefully
Thanks in advance,
