 Thanks for that - in the meantime, I rebuilt it using what I think
is the correct set of fedora patches re guile-2.0, but with webkit-1
instead of gtkhtml : it still falls flat on its face and gives a
traceback of scm files (with guile-2.0), so I guess that gtkhtml
(whether with your clean fix or my dirty fix) is not the problem.

 I can't see myself getting time to try to build guile-1.8 in
/opt/deadparrot/, so reinstating gnucash is dependent on someone who
can can do that, preferably with guile-2.0 in /usr.

 LFS has always been about living on the bleeding edge, although
fedora and debian-unstable users often bleed a bit more, so I don't
think that reverting the book's (main) version of guile to 1.8 is
the correct thing to do.

das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
