Re: Install Gimp Help Documentation

The INSTALL file with version 2.6.1 of the Help documentation implies the installation folder by the following command:
where '$prefix' is shown (in the included makefile file) to be '/usr'
$ cp -R html/en $prefix/share/gimp/2.0/help/
Unfortunately neither the explicit copy command nor use of the special makefile installs the help files into a location that GIMP itself knows about - it still says the help files are not installed.
So, where should they go and why are the INSTALL instructions inconsistent with the application?
