Oops, yes the listserv ate the attachments.

I first get an offer from Gnucash-bin:

  The configuration data used to specify default values for
  GnuCash cannont be found in the default system locations.
  Without this data GnuCash will still operate properly but it
  May require some extra time to setup.  Do you wish to setup
  the configuration data?

I click setup, and there are several options to add search paths to gconf.paths, which
is already updated.  Regardless which path I take, I end up with gconftool-2 throwing 
some kind of error: 
  "Failed to execute child process 
  "gconftool-2" (No such file or directory)

Didn't see any additional info in the syslog.

I am running from an administrative process.
