I have run into this a couple of times as well. There seems to be a bug 
in the build macro for gsettings.xml files (which comes straight from 

I don't know the exact details, but in some circumstances the schema 
files don't get compiled if there are already compiled schemas. So if 
you have built gnucash without ofx support before and then reconfigure 
to also build ofx support, the ofx schema won't be built.

IIRC this can be worked around by removing the installation directory, 
running a make clean in the build directory and then build/install 

Note that the same can happen with the optional aqbanking support.

If someone can pinpoint the exact cause and knows a fix that would of 
course even be better.
