Ted, from the irc log I see you try to build GnuCash for OpenSuse with guile 

The 2.4 branch for sure won't work with guile 2.0. I have committed a series 
of patches by guile developer Andy Wingo to the development branch which 
should improve the guile 2.0 support in there. The changes are too intrusive 
to introduce in the stable 2.4 series as well unfortunately.

But there are known problems in the development branch too with Guile 2.0. See 
for example the bug reported in our bug tracker by the Debian maintainers [1] 
which among others also reports the same make check failures.

I believe these are due to the swig guile support. Swig continues to generate 
guile code using deprecated guile symbols. Check out the bug report and the 
downstream links to learn more about it.
