I gave that procedure a try myself, and I got a working GnuCash - but
not a Quartz GnuCash.  It runs under X11.  Just to make sure, I quit
my X server, and doing so killed GnuCash.

I suspect that some partially-built code from a previous build took
precedence over my new configuration.  I did do both "port uninstall
gnucash" and "port clean gnucash" before I tried the install.  The
build happened quite quickly, just a few minutes, whereas I remember
previous attempts took several hours.

Short of blowing away my whole /opt directory, is there a way I can
guarantee a clean build?  That is, I want to clean all the
dependencies too, and GnuCash has a lot of them.

Here is my /opt/local/etc/macports/variants.conf:


I'd be quite stoked if I could get a Quartz build of GnuCash working.
I've been just using these giant OpenOffice spreadsheets for all my
bookkeeping.  They do the job, but leave much to be desired.
