When in doubt rebuild everything. After much fussing around I
wiped out the .gimp-2.6 file from my home directory. Then I
downloaded the 2.6.11 source in bzip form. Then I went through
the usual machinations. When I restarted gimp it couldn't find
the documentation locally but offered me the option to use the
online html version. I chose that option and that is what is working

I suspect there was something in my .gimp-2.6 directory that
was left over from a Salix download of gimp and that was messing things up.
But in any case when I click the Help->Gimp Manual button I go to the
web page version automatically and instantly via Firefox. This is
the latest anyhow. 

Thanks for your help.
