I can confirm that on Ubuntu 9.10, uninstalling (only)
libgoffice-0-8-dev and installing libgoffice-0-dev allows building of
both 2.2.9 and current 2.3. I will put a note on the wiki build notes
for 9.10 http://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Building#Ubuntu_9.10_.28Karmic_Koala.29
While there I will remove the note relating to the fact that for a
while 2.3 would not build due to this issue as it is now obsolete.
