I'm not sure what you are asking for. Since this is a development
version, it requires slightly late version of some libraries, and thus
sometimes not available on some distributions. It does not mean you
can't compile the dev version of GIMP, only that you may have to
compile some of the dependencies.
I am myself a GIMP dev, and I currently use Linux Mint (Linux Mint 17
Cinnamon 64-bit). So there are no problems: you can build GIMP there.

Or when you ask "available", do you mean like officially available?
GIMP 2.9 is a development version. Everyone is welcome to build it but
it is not deemed "stable", so it means you build at your own risk,
Also distributions are allowed to make packages for their users (it's
Free Software!), but it has been decided during the last GIMP meeting
that we won't ask for such packages officially. If distributions do
packages, they are responsible for these.

I hope I answered your question.
