Hmm, have you set up the emul directory properly? Do other FreeBSD programs,
esp. X programs work? Maybe you didn't set up the /emul/FreeBSD directory
properly or maybe you didn't chroot /emul/FreeBSD before you started gimp.
I think there should be a manpage out there that describes how to setup the
emulation for FreeBSD (and Linux). I don't know if it's in NetBSD-1.2Beta, or if
it is still locked in the unreleased NetBSD-1.3Alpha (aka NetBSD-current after
the NetBSD-1.2 release has finally been made) tree.
