gnucash will not install/run....

I'm having a terrible time with gnucash....
I portupgraded an enormous amount of stuff yesterday. The only big
problems I had were related to gnucash. I had cvsup'ed somewhere in
between important commits of the makefile apparently, and as a result
had some troubles (guppi, glade, gal, gtkhtml). I have since cvsup'ed.
But I am still having problems.
I have deinstalled it and reinstalled many times. I had it installed
and it would segfault. Then I decided to deinstall slib, slib-guile,
libltdl, guile, and gnucash. Then `make install` gnucash. Now I see
the following (which is similar to what I was seeing with the above
root# make install

You may wish to ``make deinstall'' and install this port again
by ``make reinstall'' to upgrade it properly.
If you really wish to overwrite the old port of lang/slib-guile
without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
in your environment or the "make install" command line.

Why does it seem to think slib-guile is already installed?
In any case if I do as it asks and set FORCE_PKG_REGISTER... then it
However, when I run it, it immediately segfaults. No output. Nothing.
It was working fine before I portupgraded everything so I am assuming
there is something wrong in my setup.
I did read /usr/ports/UPDATING and did not see anything gnucash
specific. The 20061014 entry does probably apply to me in general. So
I tried the instructions and well... portupgrade did not work for me, as
I (embarrassingly) do not understand `portupgrade -rf pkg-config\*`.
The "pkg-config\*" must certainly be replaced with something... but I do
not know what. Might this be the root of my problems?
Can anyone provide pointers on where I can start looking for a
misconfiguration of some sort?
Anything else I can supply that would be of use?
