On Lion, the Intel gnucash binary fails with this:

Application Specific Information:
dyld: launch, loading dependent libraries

I installed Gnucash specifically to replace Quicken 2007, because I knew Quicken wasn't compatible with Lion!

Lo and behold, after installing Lion, I try to run Gnucash. No dice. Oh well, I still have my checkbook (the paper kind). Luckily this app's open source, and I've got it on my Linux box (where I know it works). I'll use it there until the Lion update's in…

I can confirm by applying the 2 patches linked in the bugzilla issue above version 2.4.7 worked for me.

The patches seem to work for me, too (though there is a window resizing bug that is mentioned on the patch page). Great, quick work by the helpful developer.

once downloaded the patches, open terminal cd /Download directory and use the mv *.dylib /Applications/
to move the files into the correct location
