Thanks, Josh.

I was able to locate the Hello World report on my local installation, 
but the tutorial isn't there. I used Fink to install Gnucash, so I was 
expecting the path 
/usr/local/share/gnome/help/gnucash/C/xacc-repdev.html to translate to 
/sw/share/gnome/help/gnucash/C/xacc-repdev.html, but although the 
directory structure up to C exists on my local disk, there's no file 
called xacc-repdev.html. Is there an online version of this document 
somewhere? I tried the CVS repository, but didn't have any luck there
