"make install" and then run it out of your install directory.
Apparantly the g2 branch doesn't have all the necessary environment
variable settings to point to the new-in-g2 ui configuration files.


PS: For the record, I never run out of the build tree, I always run
in the install tree..  I also install into /opt/gnucash-g2 to make
sure it doesn't interfere with other versions of gnucash.
