The Yelp package is not required for a functional GNOME desktop. Note, however, that without Yelp you will not be able to view the built-in Help provided by core GNOME and many of the support applications. This is mentioned here because you may not wish to install a Gecko layout engine. Without a Gecko layout engine you will have no graphical browser capability as the default GNOME browser, Epiphany-22.214.171.124, also requires a Gecko layout engine.

Install Yelp by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=$(pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0) \ --sysconfdir=/etc/gnome/2.14.3 \ --localstatedir=/var/lib && make
This package does not come with a test suite.
Now, as the root user:
--prefix=$(pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0): Setting the prefix using this parameter instead of with $GNOME_PREFIX will ensure that the prefix is consistent with the installation environment and the package will be installed in the correct location.
--sysconfdir=/etc/gnome/2.14.3: This parameter causes the configuration files to be installed in /etc/gnome/2.14.3 instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/etc. Additionally (if applicable), the parameter ensures that the GConf-2 database is correctly updated.
--localstatedir=/var/lib: This parameter is used so that all ScrollKeeper files are installed in, and the ScrollKeeper database is properly updated in /var/lib/scrollkeeper instead of some files being installed in $GNOME_PREFIX/var/scrollkeeper.
