Hi Dan -
If your experience in developing under linux is limited, then perhaps
you can develop gnucash in an environment with which you are more
familiar. Gnucash is not strictly a linux application. I have had
success building it for Solaris, with most likely far less overall
development experience than you possess. I have heard that it may
even be buildable in a Windows development environment.
