I had the same error, but: It's a leftover from the removal of directories 
from the source code. It would not disappear with a clean source directory. 
But, as this is an existing source directory, it still has this obnoxious 
generated extra "gnucash" directory in many of the source directories. Those 
have been generated, so they don't disappear through "svn update" (git pull) 
alone. Instead, you have to manually remove those:

  rm -rf src/business/business-core/gnucash

and the same in business-utils and I think two more, four altogether.

I don't know how to fix this automatically, though.
