This vaguely rings a bell as an hpux issue that libtool couldn't work
around.  I don't think its a gnucash issue at all.  I'm not sure what to
suggest other than skipping the 'make' step and going straight to 'make
install'.  IIRC, in the former command libtool tries to set up the
application so it can be run from the source directory, thus relative
run-paths. In the latter, libtool links the libs for their ultimate
destination in the file system using absolute run paths.
