But we'd probably be better off using the online version (which might
be out of date) instead of the local version (which is definitely out
of date).  It looks to me like this is a bug, but I'm not sure if it's
with macports or upstream.  Switching to (instead of works in a web browser.
The string gimp-help.xml only occurs a few times in the source, but
I'm not sure I want to rebuild gimp to see if I can fix it.

I'll probably file a ticket somewhere...
