The issue here is that the linker is finding an old version of some
GnuCash libraries in /usr/local/lib and is trying to use them instead of
using the version you've just compiled.

The solution:

1) Uninstall gnucash from /usr/local
2) re-configure gnucash with --prefix=/opt/gnucash
3) re-build and re-install gnucash into /opt/gnucash

Not surprising; those QOF APIs probably didn't change before now.
