Guys, I strongly suggest that libgtkxmhtml *NOT* be used for
the help browser.

Do you want to continue? [Y/n]

This is *absolutely* wrong. GIMP already has far more dependancies
than any non-GNOME package I know, and adding in the entire GNOME
disaster set of libraries is wrong.

Can we please offer a non gtkxmhtml-based solution for help? This is
totally ridiculous! I really don't want to add in 57 more dependancies
just to install GIMP!

Is there any alternative? I've heard talk of a non-GNOME-based
gtkxmhtml, but I don't know anything about it.
