This was not a clean install:
:debug:main Skipping completed org.macports.configure (gimp-help-en)
:debug:main Privilege de-escalation not attempted as not running as root.
:debug:build build phase started at Wed Aug  1 06:24:43 CEST 2012
:notice:build --->  Building gimp-help-en

Configure phase should not be skipped.

`sudo port clean gimp-help-en` then try again, then attach the log to that ticket.

Also, indicate if libxml2 is installed: `port installed libxml2`

And seriously, don't use priority flags in emails for distribution lists. Tech-oriented people are likely to immediately trash such emails--if the list doesn't automatically.
