I have just tried to build gnucash, but it seems to have a conflict
with guile, of all things:

gmake[5]: Leaving directory '/usr/ports/lang/guile/work/guile-1.8.8'
gmake[4]: Leaving directory '/usr/ports/lang/guile/work/guile-1.8.8'
gmake[3]: Leaving directory '/usr/ports/lang/guile/work/guile-1.8.8'
gmake[2]: Leaving directory '/usr/ports/lang/guile/work/guile-1.8.8'

pkg-static: guile-1.8.8_3 conflicts with guile2-2.0.14 (installs files into the same place).  Problematic file: /usr/local/bin/guile
*** Error code 70

Does anyone else know about this, and any workaround?
