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.

Install Yelp by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-static && make
This package does not come with a test suite.
Now, as the
make install && update-desktop-database
switch prevents installation of static versions of the libraries.
--enable-gtk-doc: Use this parameter if
GTK-Doc is installed and you wish
to rebuild and install the API documentation.
/usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache will be
updated and therefore the help in gnome applications will
work. Some packages run this command during their installation, but
yelp and the gnome applications do not.
