What it looks like is happening is that during the build, the "svnversion"
tool is present and being run, and this attempt to run svnversion is
failing due a missing library.

Quickest workaround is to delete the subversion, apr and apr-util packages
(if practical) and reinstall them, or at the very least, install apr-util

This doesn't seem to be a problem with the gnucash source, but rather with
the subversion installation on your machine (which is accessed by the
gnucash build).
