Here's an updated guile.1 manpage. I just added a section documenting
GUILE_LOAD_PATH. I'd like to do the same for the guile info pages.
Should I just send those fixes here too?

Guile is an interpreter for the Scheme programming language. It
implements a superset of R4RS, providing the additional features
necessary for real-world use. It is extremely simple to embed guile
into a C program, calling C from Scheme and Scheme from C. Guile's
design makes it very suitable for use as an "extension" or "glue"
language, but it also works well as a stand-alone scheme development
executable itself provides a stand-alone interpreter for scheme
programs, for either interactive use or executing scripts.
This manpage provides only brief instruction in invoking
from the command line. Please consult the guile info documentation
.B info guile

.IP -l FILE
Load scheme source code from file.
.IP -e FUNCTION
After reading script, apply FUNCTION to command-line arguments
do -s SCRIPT at this point (note that this argument must be used in
conjuction with -s)
Describe command line options and exit
Start guile with debugging evaluator and backtraces enabled
(useful for debugging guile scripts)
Display guile version and exit.
Enable emacs protocol for use from within emacs (experimental)
Stop argument processing, start guile in interactive mode.
.IP -c EXPR
Stop argument processing, evaluate EXPR as a scheme expression.
.IP -s SCRIPT-FILE
Load Scheme source from SCRIPT-FILE and execute as a script.
