It's possible that setting XML_CATALOG_FILES in your environment  
wasn't working because of some environment sanitation somewhere along  
the line in the installation of gimp-user-manual.

This workaround, however, should no longer be necessary as of the  
latest update to libxml2 (2.6.28, revision 1).  Try updating libxml2  
_and_ libxslt (the latter seems to take its default catalog location  
from the former), make sure that docbook-xsl is also up to date  
(1.72.0), and let us know how you go.  Good luck!

Kind regards,
