David and Derek,
Thanks so much for all the help. I am in the middle of going down the path of the fink installation. gnuCash currently is in the middle of its install.
If this does not work I'll try David's suggestion. As I stated previously, I'm new to the mac environment coming from the window environment and this seems like a lot of work to install one program. But I guess I'm spoiled.
Thanks again for your time and help. Hopefully the gnuCash install from the fink package will be successful.

This is a bug in Apple's X11 implementation. They're moving to xorg's
X11, but they screwed up for machines that have never had 10.5 earlier
One of fink's x11 experts says that the command:
sudo perl -pi.bak -e 's|2.0.0|2.1.0|' /usr/X11/lib/libXrandr.la
from a terminal window should fix it. (Only have to do this once,
unless Apple breaks it again with 10.5.3.)
Also, it looks to me like Macports has fixed the guile/slib issues
with their gnucash portfile. So, since you already have the macports
infrastructure in place, I'd recommend you try the X11 patch, and then
reissue the macports install command for gnucash.
If you do choose to try fink's gnucash package, it's package name is
gnucash2. But one still launches it with just 'gnucash' in a terminal
Fink's gnucash2-docs package (the help files) does not work at the
moment because of a gnome version mismatch problem with yelp (gnome's
