Thanks for testing. As of GIMP, I do not think it will be updated soon. But ISTR a post by Ken saying that the help system for GIMP could be accessed without webkitGTK. Maybe we could put instructions on the GIMP page for that.
I cannot recall what I had to do (it was years ago, I share ~/ from one build to the next), but google pointed me to https://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-help.html (section 12.2 of the manual) which links to section 1.5 (figure 12.5) at https://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-pimping.html#gimp-prefs-help

I tried setting gimp's help to 'Web Browser' and it works quite well. Perhaps we should declare the old webkitGTK deprecated and list it as an external dependency. It would only take a short paragraph to provide instructions to set the help for gimp to the browser.
