when you call gnome_program_init, do it this way:

gnome_program_init (app_id, version, LIBGNOMEUI_MODULE, nargs, args,
                            GNOME_PROGRAM_STANDARD_PROPERTIES, NULL);

this will add the need for adding some -D to the compilation command
line, since GNOME_PROGRAM_STANDARD_PROPERTIES expects them to be
defined. They are:

	-DPREFIX=\""$(prefix)"\" \
        -DSYSCONFDIR=\""$(sysconfdir)"\" \
        -DDATADIR=\""$(datadir)"\" \

once you do this, gnome_help_display knows how to find the help file. At
least, it did work for me.
