I unzipped and untarred the help files. I ran ./configure in that directory. 
When I ran "make" I got a slew of messages of the form:

I/O error : Attempt to load network entity 
../src/appendix/bugs.xml:3: warning: failed to load external 
entity "http://www.docbook.org/xml/4.3/docbookx.dtd";

...and of course no usable help files. 

It would be nice if the help files were integral to the Gimp distribution. 
Perhaps that is too simplistic. I have Slackware Linux 11.
