Did you, by any chance, install fontconfig using i-Installer?

There's something broken in Leopard regarding X11: Leopard, even if  
not using /usr/local/bin, places it before /usr/X11/bin in PATH.  
Hence, components installed by i-Installer in /usr/local may take  
precedence over those already in /usr/X11, causing version  
incompatibilities. I think the latest i-Packages take additional  
precautions to avoid this.

That said, in your case I suspect the problem is simply that Gimpshop  
isn't compatible with Leopard: see <http://www.gimpshop.com/download.shtml

Did you try the Gimp port from Wilbur Loves Apple <http://darwingimp.sourceforge.net/download.html

be, and reason why I've never managed to use Gimp more than 30 seconds  
before giving up and erasing it from my disk. The existence of  
Gimpshop could be reason to give it another try (even if I don't like  
palettes that much, devourers of screen estate, and prefer inspectors  
à la iWork or MS Office 2008).
