Yes. Personally I have so far not really been interested in Python and
haven't attempted to build the Python scripting support. But others
have it working.

Hmm, you downloaded the auto* sources, or ready-built packages (from
where?)?  Anyway, you can install them (after building them) anywhere,
as long as the executable commands are found in PATH. GIMP HEAD
requires newer autotools than what's in the MSYS-DTK package,
unfortunately, so I guess you really need to build them yourself. (I
don't recall which one of the autotools it is that's too old in
MSYS. Probably automake?)
