I recommend you go with 1.9.x at this point instead of
working hard to build 1.8.11. Besides, if you're building
1.8.x you should build 1.8.12. Still, 2.0 is imminent --
you should really consider building the newer version.

Sorry, outlook fuzzy. Please try again.

Try using a real distribution? I hear Gentoo lets you
build all your software AND it has a real packaging system
for you, too!
Seriously, I can't even articulate how frustrated I am with
Slackware users. I think that the VAST majority of "help me
build gnucash" comes from Slackware users! Why is that?
Sure, we get lots of questions from other distributions, but
generally it's a quick "you're missing X -- go install it"
and that's it. They're done. Slackware users seem to need
a lot of hand holding. It's VERY frustrating.
