I got all of the dependencies (except WebKit) and GIMP 2.10.20 to build on
To make a very long  story short, each dependency, and GIMP, is best built
with no traces of previous builds or out-of-date dependencies. "make clean"
and re-configuring  are inadequate. It's easiest just to re-clone each
repository, or delete each extracted source directory.
Each dependency needs to be installed into whatever build-prefix is
configured, and then the next dependency may be built. Sometimes, Iterating
over multiple versions of a dependency is required. In that case,
delete/uninstall the older version after you have built what needed it, and
then build the newer version.

I simply gave up for webkit. Webkit is gigantic, and has a wilderness of
dependencies. It easier just to use an external browser to access GIMP help.

First, I'm glad you fixed it.

Second, for webkit my impression is that gimp-2.10 looks for an
ancient version.  Certainly, using firefox to access the online help
has worked fine for me in the last couple of years.
