Here is what I did, more or less.  Whether it can be done in fewer steps
I don't know. Honestly, I did it a little differently... but I think
below is correct.  Hopefully someone will chime in if this looks too far
off base.

As root do the following (no warranties here, use at own risk)
  - deinstall gnucash (/usr/ports/finance/gnucash)
  - deinstall guile (/usr/ports/lang/guile)
  - deinstall libltdl (/usr/ports/devel/libltdl15)
  - set the following environment variable:
    before the next step.
  - 'make configure' gnucash
  - 'make install' gnucash.  (the others should fall into place as

Setting an environment variable is a little different depending on the
shell you are using.

For me (using csh):
   # setenv libltdl_cv_sys_dlopen_deplibs yes
If you are using sh:
   # set libltdl_cv_sys_dlopen_deplibs=yes
