What seems to happen in my environment (Windows XP) is that initially all
the .scm files get copied from the source repository (/c/soft/gnucash/repos)
to the build tree (/c/soft/gnucash/build). Then 'make install' (actually on XP) copies them from the build tree to the install tree
(/c/soft/gnucash/inst). However, if I update a .scm file in the repository,
doing 'make' will not cause the updated version to get copied to the build
tree, so 'make install' still installs the old version.

Of course, if I blow away the build tree and start over, everything operates
as expected but that takes too long. So I usually just manually install my
updated .scm files and restart GnuCash.
