On a clean, 32-bit, full install of Slackware 14.2, using the scripts as
they currently exist in the SBo repo, gnucash and it's dependencies
built and installed without issue.


Also, as Matteo noted in your "CMake issues" thread, even gnucash 2.6.17
will build against what is in the repo. So, yet again Rich, the issue is
not reproducible and appears to be on your end.
