Well, I can imagine a small embedded system where files and
streams cannot possibly be larger than 2 GiB.  On such a system
it might be reasonable to use gnulib modules in small-file mode.

If this is a real issue, and if someone takes the time, I think
it'd be OK to add small-file support to gnulib, because I don't
think it'd be much of an intrusion on the existing code.  (Not
that I'm volunteering!  I left the 32-bit file world long ago,
thank goodness.)

More likely, I expect, is that guile was simply misbuilt in
small-file mode.
