I installed Wireshark/Ethereal from Darwin Ports so it took care of the 
dependencies, then I laid out my source code to develop with.  You have 
similar issues with dependencies on other non-Linux operating systems 
such as FreeBSD :(.

There is a version of Gimp available called Gimp.app that is built with 
a tool called Platypus.  It lets you set up a script to start a program 
(such as setting DISPLAY to :0.0 then launching the executable file) and 
package it along with dependencies into a .app suitable for running from 
the /Applications folder in OS X.
