I have already installed 1.3.4 and 1.4.0 with no luck. Would it be
safe to create a soft link as such:
ln -s libguile.so.1.x.x libguile.so.9
In other words, can libguile.so.9 be redirected to a newer version of
libguile so that if gnucash is specifically requesting the .9 version
it finds it?
as i understand it, this would not be wise. your system's shared
library support may be temporarily fooled by the filename irregularity,
but somewhere along the way, gnucash expectations from libguile won't be
met and you will experience (possibly annoyingly subtle) misbehavior.
the root cause seems to be a bad install, so a re-run through that
process w/ logging could help. could you show configuration info:
"configure" command line, env vars (like CFLAGS, etc), config.guess
output, and the return value of running configure?
