No problem, provided that 1) my "GIMP on OS X" installation, from the
distribution built by Simone Karin Lehman is not affected, i.e. if I can
install this
test executable in a directory different from /Applications; and 2) my
personal
scripts, fonts, plugins, ... under ~/Library/Application
Support/GIMP/2.8/ are not
affected.  OK, I could backup the whole stuff, but...  And, well, in about
ten
days I am planning to leave from home for a short trip in camping car wit
limited/no web access...
