Since the Germanic ablaut is derived from PIE ablaut, yes. Latin and Sanskrit do (altho it's not called ablaut).

The native Indian grammatical terms for ablaut (link) are guṇa 'string, thread' and vṛddhi 'growth'.

while I don't believe there is a chart of regular gestures(even though some, e.g. dynamics indications, have a pretty similar look, regardless of the conductor), there are time signature patterns that are fairly standard.

Actually, Buff, the first sentence under History of Conducting mentions it, spelled cheironomy. I've only started to read the article, so I have no further comment at this point! Oh, yes, thanks for the link.
