there is an expander twisty for folders.  from there, you can tell gimp
to use "Plug-Ins" from other directories, effectively putting that
directory into gimps path.  this works for python and perl scripts and
your compiled c plug-ins.  the "Scripts" dialog would be the way to show
it to other script-fu containing directories.

my preferences solution alone will not do this.  running "gimp --gimprc
<different gimprc>" combined with setting the preferences differently
there would do what you need, however.  i have not tried all of this
myself, it is just the approach i would take if i needed to do this.

please let us know if this works for what you are trying to do.
