 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
 Optional Plug-Ins:
    Help Browser:        no (WebKit not found)
