The fun never ends.
After your patches and latest commits, I restarted the installation from 
fresh to figure out what was still broken.
In addition to the things I previously ran into and aren't fixed yet 
(which I'll list in a message when I get the build done), there's a new 
one as of today:

wget --continue 
-O /Users/gnucash/gnucash-stable/src/pkgs/aqbanking-5.99.45.tar.gz
--2020-03-06 11:15:23--

Apparently, aqbanking-5.99.45.tar.gz has disappeared from that site. 
There are new versions dated 3/6/2020 here: 
https://www.aquamaniac.de/rdm/projects/aqbanking/files but none of these 
are aqbanking-5.99.45.tar.gz

There's a version here: 
https://github.com/aqbanking/aqbanking/releases/tag/5.99.45 but that 
does not compile for me.

Does anyone know anything about that?
