Go for it! 

About DTK - is it packaged within trilinos at present?  I noticed the configure process looks for it in the trilinos installation tree…  Or is that just where you've installed it?

It's hard to explain - I'm going to put some instructions on how to build it on the Wiki.

It is not packaged with Trilinos (it's actually on GitHub here: https://github.com/CNERG/DataTransferKit)... but what you do is essentially add it to Trilinos as an "extra package" and then build Trilinos "with" it.

This is the the whole "Tribits" build system... mostly a product of Roscoe Bartlett (I believe).
