Talking to myself here... which is not too unusual. Unfortunately.
Updating the pkgsrc makefiles to just pull goffice 0.3.5 and gnumeric
1.7.5 (which was a typo, intended 1.7.6), without any patches, updating
gnumeric goffice dep to >=0.3, and generating a PLIST with print-
PLIST, produces a gnumeric which works fine on at least macosx (10.4.8
ppc) and netbsd (3.1_STABLE i386). So this would seem a safe update to
do. It handles a couple of .xls imports notably better than 1.6.x
