Note that (at least) the following are required for building gnucash:
If you want OFX support, you need to make sure libofx is installed, which also requires OpenSP.
I list these here because the README file has a section entitled "Dependencies", which contains the following:
"The following packages are required to be installed to run GnuCash:
[FIXME; see README.dependencies]"
And of course, README.dependencies does not exist in the source archive.
Once again, I will not bother trying to build it, as I have better things to do with my time than track down and install a tree of libraries just to even try to compile gnucash. If one uses a lot of libraries not commonly found preinstalled, wouldn't it be a good idea to maybe include proper versions of said libraries in one's build tree? Lots of other projects do this...and it makes life a lot easier.
The project website complains that there's a lack of developers, and so the project is going slowly. Perhaps if they made the code somewhat less annoying to build they would have more help.
