On http://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html GnuCash is mentioned as a
component which was written by the GNU Project: "but we wrote many
components that are not tools (2)." 

"2. For instance, The Bourne Again SHell (BASH), the PostScript
interpreter Ghostscript, and the GNU C library are not programming
tools. Neither are GNUCash, GNOME, and GNU Chess."
