There is a workaround which was posted on the questions list:

1) Use portdowngrade to grab the slib-3a1_2 version, and install it.
    gnucash/guile does not like 3a3.
2) Use pkgtools.conf to 'hold' slib-*.
3) remove the "BROKEN" status from slib-guile-3a1

Attempt 'make install clean' of gnucash.

Though this will work, shouldn't the gnucash port be marked as broken 
until lang/slib-guile is fixed?
