For the interest of others on this list, I'll answer some of my own

I have figured out how to use the Anjuta's built-in front end:
* Start GnuCash devel build the usual way (in my 
case /opt/gnucash-g2/bin/gnucash)
* In Anjuta:
  - Start the debugger (and ignore the warning that no target is set)
  - Open a source file and start setting breakpoints
  - Choose Debug->Attach to Process... and select the guile proces for
    the devel build running
  - Choose continue execution in the toolbar
  - Happy hacking ...

A simple google turned up a lot already. I could have tried this before 
polluting the list...

I'm still interested in the experiences of other developers though.
