I was trying to run gnucash today and got the following error

> $ gnucash
> gnucash: error while loading shared libraries: libenchant.so.1: cannot
> open shared object file: No such file or directory

OK, I remember seeing an upgrade to enchant, I'll try to rebuild gnucash
against the new version... but I could find the PKGBUILD only in AUR[1].

I could not find trace of gnucash in either the Arch nor the Parabola
repos.  In fact, pacman -Ss gnucash returns no result.

Does anyone have any pointers to solve this issue? Thanks!

FTR, the details of the package are (strangely, there is no dependency
on enchant):
