Tried it again as I had started working on this once I realized a new  
fink had been released -- removed any installations of gnucash,  
updated everything with fink and tried a fresh tarball of 1.9.7.

Compiles fine (when I export the proper environment settings  
according to the wiki) -- starts up fine.  But when I open an account  
register it crashes.  I can provide the complete CrashReporter dump  
if it would be useful, but basically it trips a EXC_BAD_ACCESS  
exception with the code KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE when it calls  
uta_union_clip() in libgnomecanvas-2.0.dylib

I would guess it is a problem specific to the gnomecanvas library (or  
one of the other libraries) on Intel Macs, but I don't really know  
how to isolate the bug to report it.
