Compiling the CVS head

Hello everyone
after having down loaded the current cvs version of gnucash I run into 
problems with compiling (RH7.2 pretty current)
I suppose we have to start everything with ./ ?

Then I get complaints like:
opying file intl/ref-del.sin
Copying file intl/textdomain.c
Copying file po/
Adding an entry to po/ChangeLog (backup is in po/ChangeLog~)

Please add the files
  codeset.m4 gettext.m4 glibc21.m4 iconv.m4 isc-posix.m4 lcmessage.m4
from the /usr/share/aclocal directory to your autoconf macro directory
or directly to your aclocal.m4 file.
You will also need config.guess and config.sub, which you can get from

Making ./aclocal.m4 writable ...
Running intltoolize ...
patching file po/
Hunk #1 succeeded at 35 (offset 1 line).
Hunk #3 succeeded at 173 (offset 2 lines).
Running aclocal  -I macros ...
aclocal: 586: macro `AM_PATH_LIBGLADE' not found in library

**Error**: aclocal failed. This may mean that you have not
installed all of the packages you need, or you may need to
set ACLOCAL_FLAGS to include "-I $prefix/share/aclocal"
for the prefix where you installed the packages whose
macros were not found
root(eno,gnucash)# cd /usr/share/aclocal

any pointers would be appreciated.
