That's a small shim that allows an app to run from a different <prefix> that the one it was built for and it doesn't work if everything isn't contained under <prefix>. That's why -DENABLE_BINRELOC=OFF is a suitable workaround for -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/gnucash not being able to find the environment files. Perhaps the right fix is to simply force it off if installing to /opt/*.

Thanks, John, ENABLE_BINRELOC=OFF fixes this issue. I didn't test it 
before, because Geert Janssens wrote in a comment to bug 794916, that he 
commited a fix for it already in gnucash 3.1. So I would only suggest to 
make this really the default or to add this option to the documentation 
for the /opt target.

Best regards
