There seems to be a problem on some platforms with slib only being set up for 
guile 1.6, while GnuCash by default picks up guile 1.8.

This link explains how to fix it for Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx):

The part of the wiki page explains how to build GnuCash for Lucid, but you can 
ignore that. Only the part about guile-slib-1.8.0 is relevant.
