 From the Readme in aqbanking:

"For the OFX Direct Connect back end even a newer version of LibOFX is 
needed (at least >=0.8.1)"

Which means you'll have to get libofx from CVS and compile it. There was 
a hack Martin Preuss needed to add to libofx to get it to mesh with the 
aqbanking routines for the direct connect functions. Libofx hasn't 
released a tarball beyond 0.8.0.

I'm having ssl problems with gwenhywfar on my mac, but it looks like 
aqbanking/libofx are going to work really well with gnucash >=1.9.
