If you show us exactly what error occurred we may be able to help you

I don't think you have any misconfiguration. As was said, gnucash has
lots of dependencies -- so many that my port dependency graph maker
just draws a jumble, which you can view here for your undoubtedly
"port variants gnucash" explains that there are some variants which
may help a bit: without_quotes, without_hbci, without_ofx, each of
which deletes some of the dependencies (at the expense of some feature).
