Try 'fink selfupdate-rsync' and then 'fink list gnucash2'. If gnucash2  
is found, then you can 'fink install gnucash2'.

An initial fink install ends up with fink in a state that isn't too  
useful :(. The fink selfupdate-rsync should kick it into a reasonable  
state. Thereafter, just 'fink selfupdate' should do what you need.

If you will be wanting to update gnucash2 as fast as you can once new  
versions of gnucash are released, you will need to enable the unstable  
branch of fink using 'fink configure'. Version 2.2.5 is available in  
fink stable. 2.2.6 is in unstable (and has a date entry glitch which  
probably means I won't move a new version to fink stable until 2.2.7  
settles out well).
