gnucash is doing exactly that - failing the build if there already is a
version of gnucash installed:

# First, make sure a previous Gnucash installation is removed:
if [ -e /usr/bin/gnucash ]; then
  echo "A previous Gnucash installation has been found."
  echo "Please remove it before running this script."
  exit 1
