As i tried to explain ;) 'help' is running now
for any gnome application, but not for gnome-commander,
because i can't do 'make install' as user, users have no write 
permission in all common installation directories:

# touch /usr/share/gnome/test
touch: cannot touch `/usr/share/gnome/test': Permission denied

It's all octal 755 owned by root:root, there's no exception.

The debian location provided for privileged users to write to is
/usr/local/share/ and more exactly, there is 
but that's not where Gnome YELP is looking for.

Ther gcmd 1.3.1 error message is:

"Unable to find the help files in either 
or /usr/share/gnome/help/gnome-commander. "

and you can see clearly the first path is just crap, $datarootdir should be
/usr/local/share instead and the trailing first gnome-commander has to be 
deleted. Then it would work, if i do 'install' as user.
