Failed to install webkit-gtk

Good morning Byte Masters :) I'm a humble mac user using the Terminal  
and Macports for the first time so, if possible, try to be elementary,  

2.1 GHz PowerPC G5 —last and more powerful PowerPC iMac—
OS X.5.8
MacPorts base version 2.1.2.
Ports tree updated.

The processing of port gimp failed. I have tried it twice, failing  
both. Terminal says:
Error: for port webkit-gtk returned: command  
execution failed
Error: Failed to install webkit-gtk
Error: The following dependencies were not installed: gimp-app gimp2  
webkit-gtk gimp-jp2 gimp-lqr-plugin gtk-nodoka-engine gutenprint icns- 
gimp macclipboard-gimp macfile-gimp ufraw cfitsio dcraw gtkimageview  
The log says:
:error:build for port webkit-gtk returned: command  
execution failed

I cannot find results for the error "CHILDSTATUS 58871 2" in the  
What I must do? To install google-test?

* Instead, Inkscape and Wordpress ports have been correctly installed.

Thank you very much
