no, since your new install with have a newer version of gimp, ie:
BUT, for the new version of gimp to see and import your brushes, the
tar ball would need to be extracted and in place *before* you install
the newer gimp for the install to *import* old settings/etc., iianm.

My gimp 2.3 offers additional paths to brushes, environment, .... that
are selectable, so you may be able to un-tar and then restart gimp and
open configuration to add the prior elements/paths.
