The make check error is the same as I'm running into. From Christian's reply it looks like you need to install 
some additional locales for make check to work.

Note to developers: we should document this, or we should fix the test to inform the user some locales 
required for the test are missing.

As for the gnucash run error: this error happens because swig is not patched for guile 2 :)

It probably has a compile time dependency on guile, but not a run time dependency, though it may not have 
either. That's not really important though.

The issue is that swig *generates* guile code. GnuCash uses this code at runtime. The code that swig 
currently generates is simply not compatible with guile 2.

So when you run gnucash, and gnucash tries to run the swig generated code, it aborts, exactly as you 
have experienced.

So I refer again to the bug, which in the end holds all pointers to get it working:
