I am not a developer, but this looks like a mis-specified dependency in
the gimp package.  Looking at, for the netbsd-8-0-RC1
tag the base system fontconfig is at 2.11.1.  Since
graphics/gimp/Makefile says

BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.fontconfig+=      fontconfig>=2.2.0

I expect that the base fontconfig gets accepted as sufficient by the
pkgsrc framework.  It seems that gimp actually requires a more recent

I'm guessing (and this is really only a guess) that other packages you
install correctly specify a dependency on a more up-to-date fontconfig,
so that the pkgsrc fonts/fontconfig gets pulled in and made available.
That might explain why you only see the problem sometimes: it depends on
which packages get installed before you try to build gimp.

File a PR against graphics/gimp and get the dependency line fixed, then
we'll see if there's anything more sinister going on.
