Thanks again. I put /private/opt back in /opt, removed the Cisco
vpn client (I no longer work there, so I don't need it),
performed the rebuilding step to fix the libintl problem, and
reran `port install gnucash`. The only thing that didn't go
smoothly was that `port -duf uninstall foo` didn't remove the old
unactivated versions of foo as suggested by
so I had to run a bunch of uninstall foo @version commands by
hand. It didn't quite take all 15 hours I guessed originally...
That's one bizarre bug.

Yes, but when one's company says "here's the vpn client package,
and it's preloaded with a list of configurations for our various
incoming vpn servers", it's easy just to install it and see that
it works. Also, this was over a year ago, so it may have been
the newest version at that point. Since the installer was what
messed everything up, I don't expect that upgrading to a later
version would have fixed it.
