Likely you have an install of gimp 2.2 that left files behind. 
Considering it's talking about files in /usr/local/, it sounds like you 
might have manually installed it there at some point.  You can delete 
the files referenced, or just not care.  Really, why do you care?  It's 
not hurting anything.

Ignore.  They're X server extensions that a 'normal' X server would 
have, but many (all?) VNC servers don't.

See #2.
