I come back to this - I want GIMP back on older systems, since I use(d) 
it! We know it is broken on 10.6 and 10.7 and it used to work about a 
year ago, even on 10.5 when using Ken's legacy MacPorts repository which 
is no longer there.

First, I updated my 10.7 box - just to see it still happens. I have seen 
some ports updated.

Then I made a local port repository to bring back to older releases some 
libraries or maybe gimp itself, to try to understand what component(s) 
broke it and when.

I went back in time with harfbuzz, boing back to 3.4. The issue still 

What other library which is related to font drawing would you check?
