If libpcre isn't installed, then install it.  However, libpcre is at ABI
version 1 now after a recent update.  So you will also need to
reinstall gimp.  For best results, compile it via the ports.  If you
must install from a pkg, then make sure you've got a version built after
Feb 14th (which is when the pcre version bump happened.)

I suspect it may be more useful in hindsight now, but see the
/usr/ports/UPDATING entry for 20120214
