It works already, as long as you're willing to use the unstable  
branch of fink (meaning you get to wait for gnucash and its  
dependencies to compile from source).

You do have to be careful about some of the dependencies, and the  
easiest way to do that is follow the fink website advice to blow the  
fink /sw directory structure away and start from scratch in Tiger. I  
didn't use that approach, so it is possible to upgrade fink and  
gnucash without blowing fink away. But then you need to be sure that  
gnome-libs and gtk+ get updated before you compile gnucash.

If you use the Price Editor tool to get quotes from TIAA-CREF, you'll  
need to update the Finance::Quote file manually (again).  
This will get fixed for real when a new release of Finance::Quote  
gets packaged.

I'm not sure the hbci code is Tiger ready yet. I got complaints from  
dyld about symbols not being where they were expected. I removed  
gnucash-hbci, and then got the error messages that let me know I  
still had the old version of gnome-libs. I haven't tried hbci again.  
(I'm not in Germany, and I was only thinking of trying the new  
capability it has to do some direct OFX connections. I can wait a bit  
for that.) The dyld errors look a lot like they're caused by the  
dynamic loader bug/incompatibility wrt Tiger's new code.

Meanwhile, gnucash 1.8.11-20 is working fine for me. I've only had it  
running for 12 hours, so there are some functions I haven't tried.  
But it seems stable to me.
