gmake is GNU Make, some applications don't talk nice w/ bsdmake ('make' on
your bsd system). If your installing GIMP from ports then you should be
correctly using something like 'make install clean'. The only time I've
invoked gmake was when building something by hand vs letting a ports
makefile do the footwork for me.
