Problems with gconf/dbus/gnucash

I have to admit that I have no idea about gconf or dbus. The only thing I know is that dbus is used by gconf, which is used by gnucash ...

Now, I've got a little group of five amd64 machines, all running the same NetBSD 6.99.23 kernel and userland, and all running the same set of 300+ packages, all of which were just rebuilt and reinstalled from a very recent pkgsrc.

On three of these machines, gnucash runs properly, and loads my existing data file without any problem. On the other two machines, I get two message boxes during startup, (the active) one saying that it "Cannot find default values". If I select the Setup button in this box, it tries to walk me through editting my ~/.gconf.path file, which already contains the right data!

If I instead select the Skip button, I get a series of error messages similar to the following (reformatted, to insert line breaks)

  Failed to load key /apps/gnucash/general/show_splash_screen:
  Failed to contact configuration server; the most common cause is a
  missing or misconfigured D-Bus session bus daemon. See for information. (Details -  1:
  Failed to get connection to session: Could not connect: No such
  file or directory)

I've restarted dbus, and I've compared all the dbug system files with those on the working machines, and found no differences. Yet these messages persist, and I am at a loss to figure out how to proceed.

(Yes, I did visit the URL listed in the error message, but it wasn't terribly helpful.)
