This is most certainly due to your installed libofx and libofx-devel packages, 
because those would introduce stdc++ here. How did you install libofx? The 
standard Opensuse10.2 packages which would be libofx-0.8.2-18 and 
libofx-devel-0.8.2-18? Or are there any hand-compiled libofx.la around, maybe 
in /usr/local/lib/libofx.la ? Those should be removed - only 
the /usr/lib/libofx.la file from the libofx-devel package should exist. 

For the record: I build gnucash both trunk and branch-2.0 from SVN on a 
totally new opensuse 10.2 installation just fine. The only package that I 
didn't have immediately installed was "guile-devel", but once it was there, 
installation ran just fine.
