Charts in OS X

On my system the colors seem to be messed up, but only for the
charts. The register and icons are all fine. Take the Net Worth Bar
Chart. I get weird red and blue outlines to the axis numbers and
titles, but no axis and no actual chart. It is just white in the
middle. On the other hand, the Expense Pie Chart, which has a lot of
segments, I get a chart. But the colors are pale and washed out.
The legend, title, and borders are all the red and blue outline
instead of proper text.
I just finished an upgrade trying to fix this problem. Now, I'm
running Gnucash 2.2.1 r16462. I installed it via Macports. And I'm
running OS X 10.4.11 on a PowerBook G4. I'm not getting any error
I had to set up a lot of symbolic links to get Gnucash to recognize
Guile16 as Guile. It took a lot of head-wall interaction to get it
worked out, but once I did the installation went smoothly.
Last night, I also installed Gnumeric to see if chart worked in
that. Don't they use the same library functions? As far as I can
tell, the charts work fine in that program.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
