I've downloaded and built/installed libofx from CVS.  However, building RPMs
from this (they thoughtfully provided an RPM rule for make) did NOT produce
libofx-devel, just libofx and libofx-debug.  I went ahead and installed
anyway, rebuilt GnuCash, and while the Import OFX option still appears, the
OFX Direct Connect does not.

I am assuming, at this point, that I need to rebuild the aqbanking packages
with the new libofx in place.  I'll do that and report back.
