Not as far as I can tell - I checked the build twice before the commit - on 
two platforms. Can you send me a list of discrete top-level errors? I'm not 
quite ready to commit the business-core changes - I was hoping to do that 
Sunday at the earliest but I'll see if I can pick out the problem and commit 
a sufficient portion to prevent your error messages tomorrow evening. 
(working tomorrow).

I do have changes that I'm testing in business-core/file but those were only 
copied into my local G2 tree (from CashUtil) after the commit. 

Are you using --disable-error-on-warning?
My ./autogen on Debian:
./ --disable-error-on-warning --enable-doxygen \ 
--enable-opt-style-install --prefix=/opt/garfield/gnome2

(My Mac OSX build doesn't use disable-error-on-warning).

Are these errors related to not being able to find GNCBook and 

GNCBook is QofBook and GNCObjectForeachBackend is qof_object_foreach_backend - 
I've already changed those over whilst working on CashUtil.

I spent all day trying to ensure this would work. (And the best part of this 
week preparing it!)

BTW. David, meant to ask you - I'm getting errors with GConf but only on Mac 
OSX - symbols not found in src/app-utils/test that are defined in 


when compiling test-exp-parser.c

I get no errors on Debian, only OSX. Have you seen anything like that? I think 
it could be "lazy binding" of the libraries on OSX if that makes sense.

I can't find the right library in core-utils to link against test-exp-parser.c
