# dpkg --remove --force-depends x-ttcidfont-conf
dpkg: x-ttcidfont-conf: dependency problems, but removing anyway as you request:
 gnucash depends on x-ttcidfont-conf.
(Reading database ...197647 files and directories currently installed.)
Removing x-ttcidfont-conf ...
Purging font configuration of x-ttcidfont-conf...
Purging category cmap..
Purging category cid..
Purging category truetype..
# exit
$ gnucash

Works fine here.

Probably the x-ttcidfont-conf dep should just be dropped, then?  If
x-ttcidfont-conf is providing something that gnucash benefits from, there's
apparently some other package on my system that works just as well.
