Well, Gnucash builds just fine with aqbanking support turned on, and  
aqbanking builds with the following options: --enable-ofx=yes -- 
disable-qt3 --disable-kde --disable-chipcard-client --with- 
backends="aqhbci aqdtaus aqofxconnect" --with-frontends="cbanking  
Gnucash's Actions menu has the online actions menu, but the Tools menu  
lacks the HBCI setup item.

Aqbanking builds commandline tools aqbanking-tool and aqhbci-tool,  
which I expect allow you to configure your banks, though I will admit  
that I haven't tried yet.

I suppose that it's worth trying to get it working with QT, but I  
don't really have time right now to do it. FWIW, QT3 doesn't seem to  
happily build against Leopard, and generally speaking QT4 and QT3  
aren't compatible.
