Osascript is a program that runs Applescripts. The script it's running is trying to create a link from your bundle's Resources directory to /opt/gnucash-2.2.9, which is a path hard-coded into a bunch of places. 

Open /Applications/Utilities/Console and look at the Console Log to see what the specific error is.
