I installed checkinstall and it builds and installs Gnucash3.7 without any
problem on Linux Mint from scratch using:

cmake -DWITH_PYTHON=Yes ..
sudo checkinstall

from the build directory. 

If it is not finding the ChangeLog.1999 file it may be a problem with the
relative addressing from the build directory in the cmake command. If
GnuCash3.7 is your unpacked tarball and the build directory is a
subdirectory of GnuCash-3.7 then the relative addressing to the source from
the build directory is just ".." as above. 

That installs and runs OK
