After asking the gnome/freebsd guys some nice person said I should try 
adding kern.maxdsiz=1073741824 to /boot/loader.conf and reboot.
This worked, the gimp now opens the large files when the tile cache is 
set to 512MB, editing is the same speed as fedora.

turning off the layer preview things also helped a lot.

I tried krita but it crashed when  I asked to do a 90 degree turn.

nip2 opened the files ok but it's kind of a strange program to work with.

thanks all for the answers
