GIMP no longer depends on Motif. The newer snapshots all build fine
without Motif (look in the "developers" directory on the GIMP ftp site
at Berkeley: GIMP
itself seems to build and work fine on the Alpha. The main problem
appears to be that the GIMP protocol for plug-ins is not 64 bit clean
(or at least all the plug-ins that I tried seem to have this problem).
I plan on looking into this eventually, but have some other things to
do before that. I'll try to contact the two main-authors of GIMP and
see whether an account to a nice & fast Alpha could accelerate this


PS: I did not have much luck with the October snapshot of GIMP. The
September snapshot (960913) works much better.
