Looking at gimp's main "configure" script, building the built-in help
browser depends on "webkit". The default is to build the help browser
and optionally disable it with "--without-webkit".
During the configuration phase, it looks for webkit and since I don't
have it installed, it doesn't find it and indicates internally that the
help browser shouldn't be built.
checking for WEBKIT... no
Help Browser: no (WebKit not found)
