I have a very old MacBook Pro that has the 32-bit intel chip.  I downloaded the 
native Mac OSX build of Gimp 2.8.2 but it doesn't start.  The console shows 
error messages of the form:

8/30/12 8:54:25 PM      [0x0-0x4d04d].com.gnomw.Gimp[2215]      
/Applications/GIMP.app/Contents/MacOS/GIMP: line 74: 
/Applications/GIMP.app/Contents/MacOS/GIMP-bin: Bad CPU type in executable

And indeed, when I check the filetype on all the files in the
/Applications/GIMP.app/Contents/MacOS directory I see the following:

GIMP-bin: Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64
python:   Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64

So, is there an i386 version of GIMP-bin available for download?  I'm running 
SnowLeopard 10.6.8 and I can't upgrade any further because I'm stuck on the old 
32-bit chip.
