This is on a Ubuntu 10.10 installation...

After building gnucash-1.4.10 from source, using

     sudo make install

GnuCash failed due to libgnc-qof.so.1

After running

     sudo ldconfig

GnuCash works. Perhaps make install could do the ldconfig? I can never 
remember the correct Linux foo, so I was Googling for a while before I 
found a reference and remembered the proper incantation.

I had one other problem getting GnuCash running.

         configure:27495: checking for SLIB support

    configure:27509: error: 

    Cannot find SLIB. Are you sure you have it installed? 
    See http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=347922

I found the answer at
