Why would the permission be denied, here?  Did you unpack the tarball as
the same user you're building as?  Is there anything else weird in the
permissions around this file/directory?

Huh.  Looks like never completes as it can't run intltoolize.
It intltool installed properly?  Are there more permissioning problems
on `po/`?

Some comments on this script...

It might be easier to just chown the /opt/gnucash-svn dir as your
building using, and not have to get `root`s account involved.

What are all these `sleep`s for?  In the absence of any backgrounding or
job control, commands in a shell script are run synchronously.

If you want to be very thorough, try `make distclean` instead.
