OK, I had the exact same problem. Commented out the line in init.php as instructed, got thru the install process, but now when I go to the control panel, this is what I see when the control panel is opened. Upper left where the vbGallery links should be, is just junk. The 2nd pic is when you click on that missing link - opens another frame containing the same as the initial frame.
Looks like phrase/link href is missing ?? Do I need to reimport the .xml file ?
This was a fresh install on VB3.6.2 which was also newly installed.
This happens whether or not the 'functions_gallery_store.php' line in init.php is included or not.
