Generally, no.  Standard header-file location is part of
the compiler suite.  If you don't have iostream.h, then you
probably have a broken compiler installation (or at least
a broken C++ subsystem).

Honestly, I have no idea why you're having such a hard time
with this.  It sounds like you've completely de-stabilized
your machine, almost to the point where I'd recommend that you
re-install it to a known state and start over again.  I understand
that may not be a reasonable option, but the day you spend re-installing
your machine is probably less than the number of days you've spent
trying to get Gnucash compiled.

Good Luck,
