From what I recall (haven't installed GIMP on Mac for some time) you
need to install X11 window manager first. X11 used to be included on an
"extras" cd with the official Mac systems discs, or you can download it
from Apple. Google is your friend.
Once installed, GIMP works fine on Macs.
Forgive me if I have it wrong - it's been some time since I did it. It's
pretty straightforward and everything comes from official sources so you
don't have to worry about malware.

To paraphrase The Rolling Stones, "We can't get no, satisfaction."
At my next Mac User Group meeting, we'll be having a presentation on
Mac graphics software. I'll be noting the lack of interest from the
Gimp community in providing assistance.
A year or so ago, I couldn't get 2.6 to work under Win 7 Home Premium,
FWIW, I've located another open source editing program, Seashore.
Appears to be less powerful than Gimp, but it will do what I need.
