> There are two in play here. It's a bit clearer in OSX, where loadable modules are called and shared libraries are called foo.dylib. It turns out that there's lib/libgnome.dylib and lib/libglade/2.0/ *The latter depends on the former.*

He's certain to know more about the subtleties of it than is anyone here.

Strangely /usr/lib/libglade/2.0/ *is* installled by libgnomeui-0
$ dpkg -L libgnomeui-0

but I am sure you are correct in that it is something here or in a
related package that is wrong.  Given that the whole area is now
deprecated and gnucash has moved on (on trunk) I think we have all
wasted enough time on this so I will just note the issue in the build
instructions as I suggested above.
