This probably won't be enough.  If you fix that problem you may run
into the problem described in bugzilla bug 316221, at least on PPC
machines.  The current version of this problem in glib is described
around comment 22 in the bug report.  I've had to add
--disable-error-on-warning to the configure parameters to get Gnucash
to build on my G5 running 10.4.11.  You might want to add this
parameter to the port file for Gnucash until this bug is fixed.
