Sorry about that.

Marc's pushed a partial revert which I think should get the majority of
builds going ;-)

Are there any build configurations that don't copy or include the stub file?
If there are then adding the #ifdef back into the tool_hugehelp.h and adding
a #ifdef USE_MANUAL around the stub in tool_hugehelp.c.cvs would also fix
the problem - I believe.

Alternatively we could add a #ifdef USE_MANUAL around the #include in
tool_operate.c and the code that uses it there but I think that clutters up
the code more.

Kind Regards
