Not knowing where to go from here I tried the base of the 2.4 branch
and was surprised to find that it also fails.  As I said above the tip
of trunk is ok.  Now starting a bisect on the trunk to see where the
problem went away on the trunk.  Obviously it is going to take a
little time as I am doing a clean build at each one.

If anyone had a brainwave it would be helpful.  To summarize the problem.
Building the 2.4 branch on Ubuntu 12.04 I find that when gnucash is
run it cannot find unless I set LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Building the tip of trunk does not have this problem.
Building the base of 2.4 branch *does* have the problem so something
has changed on the trunk since then to fix it.
The problem is not seen on Ubuntu 11.10
