indeed your question is not very close releated to GIMP and I'm not  
sure how I can help. For me the MacPorts gimp port works very well.

eeek, I think this might already lead to the error. The OS X 10.3 is  
already pretty old and there are a couple of differences in the  
development environment between 10.3 and 10.4.

There is not much to say about this. He is right. You should ask the  
MacPort gtk2 maintainer.

try a port search gtk28:
gtk28                          x11/gtk28      2.8.20       Gimp  
ToolKit version 2

but I'm pretty sure that GIMP 2.4 needs a more recent gtk than 2.8...

If there is nothing else you use MacPorts for, you could completely  
remove it (see http://trac.macosforge.org/projects/macports/wiki/ 
FAQ#HowdoIremoveoruninstallMacPorts ), reinstall it and just do a
sudo port selfupdate; port sync; sudo port install gimp-app gimp

does not matter (right now), both insall 2.4.0-rc1

So in the end: mail the gtk2 maintainer - you find his address by  
doing a port info gtk2.

Remember: There are only two tools in life. WD-40, for when something  
doesn't move, and should, and Duct Tape, for when something is moving  
and it shouldn't.
So does the universe explode if you spray duct tape with WD-40?
