Following suggestions from Jan Henrik Sylvester I installed
www/webkit-gtk2 but still had the same problem. I subsequently
discovered that if I started gimp from a terminal window instead of
from the KDE menu I could access the local help files with no problem
but still couldn't use the online help. Unfortunately I don't know if
this would have worked before installing webkit-gtk2.

webkit-gtk2 is not installed here, but online help works.

At this stage I was starting to wonder if I might have missed some
crucial item in ports/UPDATING at some stage in the past and might have
some dependency issues so I used a spare slice to set up a new test

I created the new system by copying all the partitions from my working
system, editing fstab to change device names and then running
pkg_deinstall -af to remove all packages. Then I installed enough ports
to run X and twm before attempting to install gimp.

This time I got lots of the following warning messages while building

I/O error : Attempt to load network entity
xml/es.xml:2: warning: failed to load external
entity "http://www.docbook.org/xml/4.3/docbookx.dtd";
V4.3//EN" "http://www.docbook.org/xml/4.3/docbookx.dtd";

These didn't stop gimp-help from building and installing but, needless
to say, gimp produced the usual errors about not having the user manual

gimp-help depends on /usr/ports/textproc/docbook-xsl. You might deinstall that port, then clean and install. Watch for a pkg-message after the install. You should also check for "optimizations" in /etc/make.conf.
