emerge --ask media-gfx/gimp

Non white on black fonts look terrible
If your non white fonts look terrible in GIMP, you might try to turn off sub-pixel hinting for GIMP. You can do this by creating a fonts.conf in the GIMP user configuration directory (e.g. $HOME/.gimp-2.8/).
<fontconfig> <match target="font"> <edit name="rgba" mode="assign"> <const>none</const> </edit> </match> </fontconfig>
