OK, success at last! The error message displayed by Tryton when a dependency is misleading: imagine the following situation:
module_c depends on module_b
module_b depends on module_a
module_c and module_b are installed, but not module_a

The error message displayed will be:
Exception: module_c unmet dependencies: ['module_b']

But it won't indicate that module_a is in fact the missing dependency... I will open a bug report against Tryton for this, as this cost me a few weeks to figure out...

So yes, I was able to install both Tryton and GNU Health from source, with the Tryton modules that GH depends on. FYI this is the list of modules that I've had to install:


A few corrections on the list of dependencies that you have put on the wiki:
- account_product is listed twice
- invoice is actually called account_invoice
- company is missing from the list (account* depend on it)

Another difference on what I had to do and what is on the wiki, is that I needed to install the python-webdav package.

Also, I had to manually remove the health_qrcodes module after executing `make install`, since I wasn't able to find the python module that provides `qrcode`. Where did you get the Python module from?

Last note: the install_man make target does return the following error (sorry, in French ;) )
$ make install_man
install -Dm 644 man/gnuhealth.1 /"/usr/share/man/man1"/gnuhealth.1
install: impossible d'évaluer « man/gnuhealth.1 »: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
make: *** [install_man] Erreur 1

There is no file man/gnuhealth.1 in the tarball. I've looked in the tarball for several 1.6.X, 1.4.X and 1.3.X but couldn't find a `man` folder. Might you have forgotten to include it?

I will send a mail to the list with the exact steps I performed to get at this point, it might help others that are trying to do the same. And then I can start on the packaging for Debian...

I've just subscribed to the -dev mailing list, so now it's not necessary to CC me anymore ;)
