I only see one error below, and the error is that you can't install
into /opt/gnucash/lib. Most likely this is because you didn't
chown the directory to yourself and instead installed as root. If
that's the case, you'll need to do the same thing now.

Well, that could certainly explain SOME things. Did you "make uninstall"
before you changed the prefix to /opt/gnucash? (I'm assuming you performed
a make install at some point before that).

This is the only error I see: Permission denied. Which means,
well, you don't have permission to write to that directory, probably
because you, well, don't have permission. ;)
