I've reviewed the patch in detail now. The error is simple: You assumed the 
aqbanking compile tarball were still existing in the TMPDIR. But on the build 
server I usually remove the tarballs from the TMPDIR rather soon because 
otherwise they will clash with a new one which should be compiled there. 
Hence, there is no TMPDIR/aqbanking-1.2.3/ folder anymore.

Instead, you need to use files solely from its installation directory. In the 
win build scripts, this is AQBANKING_UDIR and there you have the standard 
usr/, lib/, include/ etc. Hence, the header file you were looking for should 
be at AQBANKING_UDIR/include/aqbanking/version.h; alternatively, the path in 
question could be extracted from the pkgconfig file which is at 
AQBANKING_UDIR/lib/pkgconfig/aqbanking.pc, but that's just a matter of which 
command you use to extract the variables.

Your original fix for gnucash.iss was completely correct, though, and during 
the review I saw I have to fix this for the gwenhywfar installation as well, 
which I've done as well.

Thanks for spotting this!
