The same source is used on all platforms, so yes, GIMP will suddenly be 
available for Mac and Windows as well - if you do compile GIMP yourself.

The gap is between the release of the source and the availability of 
binary packages - this is beyond the control of the GIMP developers, 
as it is done by volunteers (mostly) outside of the project.

The compilation doesn't take long - minutes or hours, depending on the build 
environment (MingW+MSYS is sloooow, for example). Most of the delay is "wait 
until the maintainer finds enough time to do this".
