If you look at the gimptool output, you see that it includes -I flags
for the directories where gdkconfig.h and glibconfig.h are
(-I<top>/lib/gtk+/include and -I<top>/lib/glib-2.0/include). These
headers are in the "lib" subtree because they are
architecture-specific and compiler-specific, even though in the Win32
case glibconfig.h (if generated from the manually maintained is good for both gcc and MSVC. The other
headers can be shared among all architectures and compilers.

GIMP's config.h isn't supposed to be used by plug-ins (other than
those bundled with the GIMP sources). A GIMP developer package does
not contain the config.h file. If a separately distributed plug-in
uses a configure script, it will produce an own config.h for that

Just leave them where they are and use appropriate -I switches.
