After updating to gimp2.2, the gtkam plugin ceases to work. Reinstalling the port does not fix it. This is because it installs the plugin to X11R6/libexec/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/gtkam-gimp, and this is hardwired in the Makefile.
There are a few other problems that would hurt someone installing it from scratch. While a simple s|2.0|2.2|g should fix it, I think that this should be made more flexable.
Install GTKam and gimp.

Copy the plugin file (gtkam-gimp) from X11R6/libexec/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/gtkam-gimp to X11R6/libexec/gimp/2.2/plug-ins/gtkam-gimp.

Or fix Makefile and pkg-plist to point to gimp-2.2 libraries. Preferably, detect existing gmip version and install to correct locations, although that's beyond my skill level.
