Ok, I checked that with inverse file search ("apt-file search"). On my 
Ubuntu system these files belong to package guile-2.2-libs. And the 
*.scm files in /usr/share/guile/2.2 belong to that package as well. But 
after uninstalling guile-2.2-libs CMake complains, when building GnuCash:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:311 (message):
   Neither guile 2.2 nor guile 2.0 were found GnuCash can't run without 
one of
   them.  Ensure that one is installed and can be found with pkg-config.

Therefore I installed guile-2.2-libs again. And the build error is the 
same again as at the beginning:

ice-9/boot-9.scm:752:25: In procedure dispatch-exception:
no code for module (gnucash core-utils)

Is this maybe a problem of a missing CMake dependency?

Another idea, I updated my Ubuntu system from 19.10 Eoan Ermine to 20.04 
Focal Fossa a few days ago. Could this be a reason?
