This is GIMP based on GTK+ for X11. It needs an additional X11 server
running on OS X and thus integration into the system is very poor. What
I was talking about is the Quartz backend for GTK+ which allows GIMP to
run as a native application. As far as I know no one has ever made a
binary installer for OS X based on this.
