Launch devhelp, although the .devhelp file from Gtk+2 is installed in
share/doc/gtk/gtk.devhelp, the documentation is not listed in the interface.
Install Gtk+2 and devhelp from pkgsrc.
An ugly work-around is to (taking Gtk+ as an example):
# ln -s ../gtk /usr/pkg/share/doc/html/gtk
devhelp is then apparently unable to properly display embedded images for this
Moreover, the documentation from libglade2 is actually found in share/doc/html
by default. I would check if say freedesktop has established a standard for
development libraries documentation, and maybe if newest devhelp (0.12) fixes
I also think it would be more elegant to unify things than to patch devhelp to
look for additional directories.
