Interesting.  This is off by 256.  It seems that the -1 is being
interpreted as an unsigned int8, not a signed int8.  But the bit
patterns are correct.  I think this is either a configuration bug in
Guile, or an llvm bug.

You can see at this breakpoint that we would get the incorrect result
*only* if the type of `a' were actually unsigned char rather than signed
char.  Can you give the output of `grep scm_t_int8 libguile/scmconfig.h'
