This sounds like you're trying to run an already built gnucash binary
and getting an error. You're not going to fix this by only rebuilding
some related deps.

Remove gnucash and ALL related dependencies, along with anything else
you've installed to try and solve this, and start over. Use what's in
the SBo repo, /exactly/ as listed (no webkit2gtk instead of webkitgtk,
etc., don't version bump anything) and you have a shot at getting a
working gnucash package.
