I think this probably reflects under-documentation of the 
procedure for building and installing the online help files 
(somehow the installed files are not up to date).

Try cd'ing to the "share" subdirctory of your build tree, and do

make help
make install_help

If that doesn't do it, then I think you're right -- some component 
of the help build is not getting triggered properly by the 
Makefiles, and it may require going into doc/commands and doing
something manually.
