I tried gnucash 1.8.1 a week ago, and after taking all night to build
it coredumped whenever I built it.

Thinking that maybe I should rebuild most of my packages "clean", I
rebuilt everything from the ground up yesterday.

Now I have this happen when attempting to make install gnucash:

Making all in test

This looks... wrong.

Unfortunately, I'm so utterly clueless on pkgsrc these days that I
have no idea at all how to debug it.
