Thank you very much indeed, Armin! :)

Gnucash-2.4.10 is now installed and running in "LFS7.0 svn".

For the record,, perhaps I did not copy correctly, i did not find the file to patch. By hand I edited and generated another patch:

diff -Nau goffice-0.8.10/goffice/utils/regutf8.c-orig goffice-0.8.10/goffice/utils/regutf8.c > $HOME/sshfs/blfs/gnucash/goffice-0_8-pcre-8_30.patch

After editing to remove "-orig", it worked. Please, find it attached.

I had read in

I was trying to find a solution, thinking that would be difficult to find which file in pcre or goffice was referring to the deprecated function, when saw your mail.
