	While using portmaster, I triggered a cyclic dependency by selecting
	the gimp-help file from the config screen. When you select gimp-help 
	from the config, gimp becomes dependent on gimp-help, and gimp-help
	lists a dependency on gimp.
	Uninstall gimp help and gimp. Attempt to install gimp, and select the
	help file option.	

	Work-around:Unselect the help file option from the make config screen. 
	Fix: My preferred fix would be to remove the gimp dependency from
	gimp-help. It is possible that someone might want to install the help
	docs on a maching without gimp (To serve them on a network, perhaps?
