Installation of Yelp

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 root user:

make install

Still as the root user, ensure that /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache will be updated and therefore the help in gnome applications will work.
