I do not have yet guile-2.0 in /usr, but have installed guile-1.8.8 and slib-3b2 installed in /opt/deadparrot, now. (I do not know howto do it and at the same time have the other one). Scripts attached. Need to be cleaned and perhaps modify some directories.

The new installation of gnucash-2.4.10 uses guile and slib packages in /opt/deadparrot. Also, I used new dependencies all in BLFS Version 2012-02-26, except when they were too old and the build broke. This the case for webkit-1.6.3 (I am not using gtkhtml for this build), as I had a newer glib-2.31.16 than the book's glib-2.30.2, and webkit-1.6.1 refused to make. The build started at the same stage of LFS 7.0 svn that I had backed up before doing the the previous build.

I could test guile-2.0.3 with the patches you have, please can you provide them or give me directions?

In the following, the sequence used:

libbonobo-2.32.1 (can be after popt)
goffice-0.8.17 (reinstall using sed)
webkit-1.6.3 (no introspection, as I do not plan to use Gnome desktop)
goffice-0.8.17 (with sed)

in goffice-0.8.17:
      sed -i -e \
      's/pcre_info (r, NULL, NULL)/pcre_fullinfo (r, NULL, 0, NULL)/' \

Thanks again.
