GnuCash uses yelp to display help files, and the MacPorts version of
yelp seems to be broken. There are no handlers installed for
actually displaying things, which is why selecting the menu items
appears to do nothing.
You can try it yourself: open-x11 yelp; you should find GnuCash (and
other) docs on offer there. Selecting any document results in an
error message. IOW: The docs seem all right, but the Gnome program
that is required to display them does not work. Unfortunately, the
yelp port does not seem to have a maintainer, so I don't know who to
FWIW, the same documentation is also available on the web:
Tutorial and concepts guide
