New gimp-help snapshot, but note that building it lost links to some images between BLFS-8.1 and BLFS-8.2, so prefer the online help.

    158158 Also, for external modules where we link to CPAN without a current version,
    159  prefer to use if that works, rather
    160  than pointing to a maintainers home directory : the maintainer for a package
    161  sometimes changes.  Also,  use '-' rather than '::'  because '-' will go
    162  directly to the page instead of providing a list of possible matches.
     159 prefer to go to, find the module and link to it.
    164161 Where a dependency is used by multiple other modules on this page, but not by
    215212      using the CPAN automated install you should check when the current version
    216213      was released. If it is recent you should review its 'Changes' and
    217       'Dependencies' links at in case the dependencies
    218       have altered.</para>
     214      'Dependencies' links at in case the dependencies
     215      have altered. The BLFS editors cannot keep the details of these 'external'
     216      modules up to date, some change frequently. But the links below go to
     217      specific versions which are known to build with BLFS-8.3</para>
