You don't need the whole Gnome set of ports for Gnucash. Gnome has many
dependencies and installs the desktop environment, but you don't need
all that to run Gnucash. Why do you want to install Gnucash by hand and
not by using MacPorts?

Try 'sudo port install gnucash', that will install all necessary
dependencies and gnucash itself.
