The above doesn't actually say very much. It just says gimp-help-en failed to build, but it doesn't say why; to learn why, we'd have to read the main.log. So we don't know, just based on the above, that you were seeing the same error as FritzS.

If you're sure you've cleaned gimp-help-en, and run selfupdate, and you're still getting a build failure, then please file a bug report in the issue tracker. However, I've resolved the three separate issues with gimp-help-en today, after which the buildbot is now able to build it on Snow Leopard and Lion, and I can build it on Mountain Lion, so I now have some confidence in it at this point.

I'm sorry, I don't know what gimpshop is or how it can be installed using MacPorts.
