First, that clone command wont bring you maint branch, it will still check
out master into a directory named "maint".  You need a -b maint in there
to pull the maint branch.

Second, did you "make install"?  GnuCash is finicky about being run from
the build tree.

Still TBD ;)    Most likely missed something (see above).
