Maybe you miss a step,after installed all the dependency you have to reinstall 
gimp using the custom option of the installer (or something equivalent if you 
compile )

I packed together time ago everything needed

The GTK is NOT more needed, may be now more recent version of some libraries 
...but anyway that works and can make install easier


in the instruction included i suggest to restart the computer several times.
That is not always strictly needed BUT that  solve most of cases of mysterious 
install failures

I am trying to get PyGimp installed and working on Windows XP.  It seems
like this should be easier than it used to be.  A quick google lead to
several long install procedures.  I have been using PyGimp in Ubuntu and am
quite happy with it, but I know need to use it in windows.
My computer has Python 2.5 and PyGTK.

I ran the installer I downloaded from here:

with PyGTK installed, if gives me the option to install the Python extension
(I did this).

I don't get any error messages, but it doesn't seem like PyGIMP is really
working.  Unlike in Ubuntu, I don't have any Python menu items under
Filters, I don't see any place to launch a Python console, and it doesn't
recognize any of the scripts I have in $HOME\\.gimp-2.6\\plug-ins

Are there other installation steps I am missing?  How would I know if PyGIMP
was really working under windows?
