I ran into problems on my first time trying to build gnucash from
CVS. To try to determine whether the problems were due to my
mistakes, I did the following in a new directory (I use "runsocks" to
get through our corporate firewall) :
=>runsocks cvs -d :pserver:cvs at cvs.gnucash.org:/home/cvs/cvsroot login
=>runsocks cvs -d :pserver:cvs at cvs.gnucash.org:/home/cvs/cvsroot checkout gnucash
**Warning**: I am going to run `configure' with no arguments.
If you wish to pass any to it, please specify them on the
`./autogen.sh' command line.
deletefiles is macros/gnome-gettext.m4
*** WARNING ***
*** We're about to run "gettext" which may spew a few paragraphs

Updating Makefile.am (backup is in Makefile.am~)
Updating configure.in (backup is in configure.in~)
Please update po/Makevars so that it defines all the variables mentioned
You can then remove po/Makevars.template.
Please run 'aclocal -I m4' to regenerate the aclocal.m4 file.
You need aclocal from GNU automake 1.5 (or newer) to do this.
Then run 'autoconf' to regenerate the configure file.
You will also need config.guess and config.sub, which you can get from
You might also want to copy the convenience header file gettext.h
from the /usr/local/share/gettext directory into your package.
It is a wrapper around <libintl.h> that implements the configure --disable-nls

I believe it tripped on this line :

Here is some system info :
SunOS 5.9 Generic sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-100
Here is some version info :
GNU m4 1.4.1
gettextize (GNU gettext-tools) 0.14.1
intltoolize (GNU intltool) 0.33
autoheader (GNU Autoconf) 2.59
automake (GNU automake) 1.9.3
I'm guessing that there is some sort of incompatibility among these
versions, but I don't know enough about these tools to find it.
