I am working through the BLFS-BOOK March 17th version to compile gnucash 
1.6.8.  I have compiled all the prerequisites.  I have gtkhtml installed as 
per the book.  I have ammended the gnucash configure as per the sed command 
in the book but the configure is failing with the following message:

checking for main in -lgal... yes
checking for gtk_html_new in -lgtkhtml... no
configure: error: Cannot find gtkhtml. See the README and config.log for more 

pertinent configure.log section is:
