Error building slib-guile16

I'm trying to install gnucash, and running into a problem with
It looks like there's a bug in its installation script (makefile? I'm new
to this stuff), in that it tries to create a link that already exists,
causing it to bomb:
G5Q > sudo port install -f gnucash +guile16
---> Staging slib-guile16 into destroot
Error: Target org.macports.destroot returned: could not create new link
that path already exists
Error: The following dependencies failed to build: slib-guile16
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.
I've verified this by installing XCode and macports (the latest versions) on my
brand new laptop and simply trying 'port install slib-guile16'; it builds the
dependencies but then fails to install slib-guile16, giving the same error
As I said, I'm new to this stuff; if I knew where to look I might be able to
fix it, but there are a lot of files to poke through and I don't really know
what does what...
Advice would be greatly appreciated!
