Each time gimp-app gets upgraded I lose the ability to open URI's 
with "Open location" or by dragging images from firefox.

Apparently this is because I need to explicitly pass --without-gvfs to 
configure [1] [2]. I was rather surprised that I needed to do this 
since I have the gvfs port installed but it did the trick for me. What 
I do is to edit the Makefile and add --without-gvfs to the 
CONFIGURE_ARGS lines. The snag is that I invariably forget about this 
by the next time the port gets upgraded and I have to sort the problem 
out again. What could I add to /etc/make.conf to have this option added 
to CONFIGURE_ARGS automatically?
