OK the instructions say run ./configure and ./configure fails because it can't 
find a file called gimp-2.0 pc. I searched my disks (several versions of Gimp 
laying around) and no such file exists. The ./configure run also says:
"couldn't find a Gimp-2.0 installation". There are about three laying around. 

So, back to my original question. Where should I try to untar the Gimp help 
tarball? I don't want to muck up a functioning Gimp installation by untarring 
them in the wrong location. 

Perhaps I am using the wrong tarball. When you go to the site and look for 
help files all you can find is a directory called "test" or "testing" which 
holds about 5 different versions of help files.  I picked out the most recent 
one, 2.05

The best solution of course would be to have the help files integrated with 
the Gimp package itself. That is the way most packages work. Failing that, a 
help tarball in parallel to the current stable version and with explicit 
instructions on installation (i.e. where) would be most helpful. I suppose I 
will have to go to a Knoppix disk and figure out where the help files go from 
its internal structure.  Oh well.
