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...)

No, I didn't think it would...
| I will remove the dependency and many thanks for your feedback.
