I've bumped into this as well.  I suspect you did a portupgrade of
goffice recently and that updated it from 0.4 to 0.6 - which (AFAIK)
gnucash won't work with.  When you then tried to upgrade gnucash, it
re-installed goffice 0.4 (as a dependency) but detected goffice 0.6
during its configure.

My solution was to remove gnucash and both goffice packages and then
just rebuild gnucash (which will reinstall goffice 0.4).
