I've never actually tried using the opt-style-install.  Personally I use
the following and it works for me:
	./autogen --disable-guppi --prefix=/usr/gnucash

Make sure you have LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib   Then you wont
need to make the symlink

These errors look like it's not loading g-wrap properly, or something.
Can you run the command and see if it's actually loading the g-wrap
runtime properly?
	strace -o /tmp/gnucash.out /opt5.3/bin/gnucash

Let's solve one problem at a time...  It currently looks like you're
still having g-wrap problems.

It should work with any version of guile >= 1.3; g-wrap 1.1.9 is
the most recent version and should work fine.
