Well, you shouldn't need to "--enable-ofx" -- it should auto-detect
that you have libofx and build it in if it's there.  If that's not
working properly then it's a bug.

Unfortunately I don't know enough about the docs.  Either you don't
have yelp installed or yelp doesn't know how to find the gnucash docs.
