(Ok - if anyone did wants to see it, it is obvioulsy a .gov site, not  
a .giv)
You are asking for the vectors created with the Path tool (The one 
following the scissors on the toolbox).

Give it a try - play with it - check the "vectors" dialog in the 
Layers dockable. Remember that you have to CTRL + Click on the 
starting node to close a curve.

You can Stroke a path, in the edit menu, and convert a path to a 
selection, and later fill it with the Path tool itself.
