  In fact it has to do with and devel/glib. Here's what I just
appended to PR/21452.

  I think I tracked it down and as a result have now a gnucash that
doesn't complain about not finding callbacks and has working buttons.

  To make a long story short, it seems our does not work quite
the way the linux version does (see for example the "kgsrc/mail/evolution
1.2.x -> 1.4.x upgrade time" thread on tech-pkg from january 2004) in
that it does not search the "right" modules when given RTLD_GLOBAL.

  The problem actually is in devel/glib, not in gnucash. Our glib
package has indeed a patch-ag that is supposed to fix the problem
under FreeBSD, but it has two problems: (a) the fix is under #ifdef
__FreeBSD__, and (b) it won't work for non-current because it uses
RTLD_DEFAULT which our only has grown recently.

  So my ugly fix includes:

  * Build a -current ld.so_elf and install it on your 1.6 system.
  * Also install /usr/include/dlfcn.h
  * Modify patch-ag for devel/glib to also apply to NetBSD (I just
    removed the not-relevant part, but that's lazyness).
  * Rebuild devel/glib and install it (make replace is fine).

  That's it.
