kmymoney crashes on startup after update

I have successfully recompiled KMM on both machines. The problem evidently was that the updated KMM was built before the updated gwenhywfar4. (On both machines, activating the previous version of gwenhywfar4 allowed KMM to run.)

The MacPorts documentation helped, of course, but in case anyone else is more “user" than “expert,” the steps I followed were:
1. port deactivate kmymoney4 @4.7.1_0
2. port deinstall kmymoney4 @4.7.1_0
3. port clean —all kmymoney4
4. port install kmymoney4

Bottom line, it worked.

Many thanks to all who provided suggestions and help.
