Thanks for this info, it saved some time. Even after applying your 
changes i couldn't compile guile-gobject with my CVS guile . 
It seems that the code uses some deprecated/removed features. To get
a more or less error free compile i had to do the following:

 - change type 'scm_bits_t' to 'scm_t_bits' (see file NEWS in guile-core).

 - change 'LIST1, LIST2 ... LISTN' to 'scm_list_1 ... scm_list_n'
   (again, see file NEWS in guile-core).


With these modifications i can at least compile the shared library part.
Now, during 'make' i get the following errror:

|  make[2]: Entering directory `/home/ralf/projects/guile-gobject-0.3.0/gobject'
|  FLAVOR=gnome guile -c \
|  "(set! %load-path (cons \"..\" %load-path)) \
|   (primitive-load \"./gnome-gobject.gwp\")"
|  ERROR: Unbound variable: nil
|  make[2]: *** [gnomegobject.h] Error 2

|  make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2
Hmm,  no idea where 'nil' is supposed to come from. 
A quick grep didn't reveal anything. Ariel, any hints?
