It's been a long while since I used GIMP on a mac - but I remember
having to install X11 first.
If it's installed, it should be in Applications->Utilities. Or at
least that's where it ended up in 10.2, which is about when I jumped
the OSX ship. In any case, you should be able to run 'startx' in a
terminal (also in Applications->Utilities) and get some response other
than 'command not found' if X11 is installed.
If it's not installed, it used to be available as a download from
Apple's site and also included on the XCode CD - I'm unsure if this is
still the case. There are other options - eg macports can install
GIMP for you and it will *probably* pull in any dependencies like X11
