Description

On first launch of Gimp.app, the dialog box whose screen capture is attached appears. It says:

It appears that you are using GIMP for the first time.  GIMP will now create a folder named '/Users/aronnax/Library/GIMP/2.8' and copy some files to it.

Creating folder '/Users/aronnax/Library/GIMP/2.8'...
Copying file '/Users/aronnax/Library/GIMP/2.8/gtkrc' from '/Applications/MacPorts/GIMP.app/Contents/Resources/etc/gimp/2.0/gtkrc'...
Could not open '/Applications/MacPorts/GIMP.app/Contents/Resources/etc/gimp/2.0/gtkrc' for reading: No such file or directory

If you click "Quit" and then re-launch Gimp.app, it gets further, but if you delete the directory ~/Library/GIMP, then you will get the dialog box again.

The attached Portfile fixes it.
