I use macports lots, I really like it, but (OSX 10.6.8 8M RAM Gimp 2.8.2) I really found the macports version of gimp to cause many problems. I have installed http://www.petapixel.com/2012/08/29/gimp-is-now-a-self-contained-native-app-for-mac-os-x/
I do not prefer the mac ummm-idiosyncrasy of stealing the menu buttons, which this version does (and macports build does not), so I'm biased to the macports version but the macports version takes umm 30-60 secs to pass the splash screen while scanning plugins, has core-dumped on me and generally runs in a manner that make you think about saving your work all the time, not about what you are doing.
I have tried a few times to update, clean and rebuild without being satisfied.
