I find it very odd that the libglade-devel that Red Hat ships does not
install easily on their own system.  Note that most of the dependencies
are probably required, anyways, because they are GNOME dependencies
(which gnucash is going to depend on, anyways).  Are you not installing
Red Hat's libglade-devel package?  Note that Red Hat ships Gnucash-1.6
which implies that you should be able to build Gnucash-CVS.

Oh, let me fix that in CVS.

I've got it on a modified 7.1, but that doesn't help you. :(
