  | Installation of the docs and apps on different systems doesn't
  | make sense either, as gimp expects them to be installed in their standard
  | location. Without it, gimp will not be able to access these files and
  | provide a functional help menu.

That would be an argument for gimp having a dependency on the docs,
not the other way around (and that gimp has been in pkgsrc for years
now with no complaints I know about suggests that it isn't all that
important to most people...)

  | As the documents are already formatted and don't need further processing,
  | removing the dependency will have no adverse affect other than accommodating
  | a few users and their fantasies ;-)

No, I didn't think it would...

  | I will remove the dependency and many thanks for your feedback.

Great.   Thanks.
