Compiled GAP for OSX--> What next???

Hello everyone! This is my very first post, and you all are the only ones that can help! I've googled for answers and have gotten nowhere. I'm new to compiling, in fact, this is my first time!

From what I understand, for me to run gap on OSX, I need to compile the uncompressed (gimp-gap-2.4.0.tar.bz2) binary files. So I installed MacPorts yesterday and I think I was successful compiling. The last lines in Terminal read (with no errors):

---> Attempting to fetch gimp-gap-2.2.2.tar.bz2 from
---> Verifying checksum(s) for gimp-gap
---> Extracting gimp-gap
---> Configuring gimp-gap
---> Building gimp-gap with target all
---> Staging gimp-gap into destroot
---> Installing gimp-gap 2.2.2_0
---> Activating gimp-gap 2.2.2_0
---> Cleaning gimp-gap
Vito-Computer:~ Vito$

This looks successful to me. Am I correct?

I am showing "libavcodec.a" and "libavformat.a" showing up in my opt directory under gimp-gap-2.2

Being a newbie I assumed that the gap plugin would automatically install in Gimp. However, upon restart, I am NOT showing the "movie" option in the toolbar which is what I am supposed to see. So can anyone please tell me what I should do next?

I am trying to install gap with the latest version of Gimp 2.4.5, which I installed from an image. At this point, I suspect that this is the problem. Do I have to use a compiled Gimp for the plugin to install?

I have spent MANY hours on this, and I really would appreciate the help, especially since there are no definitive answers on the net (outlining all of the steps clearly from start to finish). Thank you!
