Thank you for your bug report. This issue has been fixed in the latest
development tree for that product. You can find more information about
accessing our development trees at 

Thanks for spotting this! 
Now fixed for MySQL-4.0.13 by making sure, that the Mac OS X help 
files are not installed by "make install" - this change will be merged 
into 4.1, too.
