>> Right now the biggest issue I ran into with Quartz GIMP from MacPorts was lack of GPU acceleration. The stock version has it working. I can't remember which component had the issue.

> Bear in mind that we’ve gone through a lot of iterations, just over the past few months alone. And indeed, the last of the known acceleration issues were resolved in May. (In particular, brushes were unusable in 10.14 and 10.15 prior to that, as our patches needed to be reconciled against upstream.)

Also, did you report the issue(s) via Trac?
