It did work when I had make add the same script on linux. So apparently make 
on OS X interprets this differently. Thanks for looking at that.

I just wonder, did the gnucash run fail because of a corrupted script, or 
because dbus didn't start ? If it's the first, we still don't know if the 
explicit dbus-launcher call is required (at least when starting from the build 
directory). If it's the latter, that would mean the gnucash script is there to 
stay on OS X.

Anyway, I'll try to get my own OS X environment in a useable state somewhere 
this week, so I can test before commit. That would be more polite towards you 
and the other devs.

My apologies for the trouble.
