I am talking about the gnucash-1-8-branch, right? As I said, I can run "make
distcheck" successfully. "make check" will spill some output that looks like
an error, but eventually it always says "xy Tests passed".
The other remark from you rather sounds like you should consider switching to
a different distribution for some time. The world really doesn't revolve
around Debian ;-) does it. I have of course zero idea why things wouldn't
work on Debian, and I honestly couldn't care less. My point was that the
current 1.8 tarball does happen to work on suse9.3 and that's it.
Actually to be honest I ran
make DISTCHECK_CONFIGURE_FLAGS=--build=i686-pc-linux-gnu distcheck
because it's a known problem of suse that people will have to specify the
--build=i686-pc-linux-gnu or otherwise the configure script will misinterpret
the features of the installed compiler/linker.
