A simple way to see what's happening is make --dry-run <what_ever> | less So in the gimp-help directory try e.g. make --dry-run html-en | less to see how the English html manual is built, while make --dry-run html-it | less will show you how to build a translated manual. You will see that the main tool is "xsltproc"; I don't know "docbook2html" and can't tell you if (and how) it can be used to create html.
