I know that this might not be a popular request, but would it be
possible for the gnucash guys to release a statically linked binary?  

I realize that the memory footprint would be HUGE, but for as un-often
as Alan runs gnucash, and the time he has put into it already, it
may have already been a better use of his time to double the RAM in
his machine, instead of trying to compile gnucash himself.

Also, having a tinderbox setup, which continually builds gnucash out
of cvs, and even has a target of a static binary, would allow more
people to easily beta-test bleeding edge stuff without messing up
their current gnucash install.
