I've rebuilt the package with USE flag 'doc', the necessary files seem to be present, but pressing "Help" in "Virtual Machine Settings" dialogue gives me the message "Can't find help file ..."

How do I fix this?

Code:
$ LC_ALL='C' eix -e app-emulation/virtualbox
[I] app-emulation/virtualbox
     Available versions:  6.1.40(0/6.1) 7.0.4-r1(0/7.0) {alsa dbus debug doc dtrace +gui headless java lvm +opengl +opus pam pax-kernel pch pulseaudio python +qt5 +sdk +sdl +udev vboxwebsrv vde vnc PYTHON_SINGLE_TARGET="python3_9 python3_10 python3_11"}
     Installed versions:  7.0.4-r1(0/7.0)(12:56:07 01/21/23)(alsa dbus doc gui opengl pam sdk sdl udev -debug -dtrace -java -lvm -pch -pulseaudio -python -vboxwebsrv -vde -vnc PYTHON_SINGLE_TARGET="python3_10 -python3_9 -python3_11")

In the strace log there are calls to "/UserManual_C.qhc" and "/UserManual.qhc" rather than to "/usr/share/doc/virtualbox-7.0.4-r1/qt/UserManual.qhc" and "/usr/share/doc/virtualbox-7.0.4-r1/qt/UserManual.qch". Is this the reason? How do I fix this?
