I don't know how to do this with Gimp or ImageMagick, but what about
using ppmhist from the pnmtools? To quite the manual:

       ppmhist - print a histogram of a portable pixmap

       ppmhist [-hexcolor] [-noheader] [-map] [-nomap] [-sort={frequency,rgb}] [ppmfile]

       Reads  a  PPM image as input.  Generates a histogram of the
       colors in the image, i.e. a list of all the colors and how many
       pixels of each color are in the image.

That seems like what you asked for.
