Thank you to all who responded.

We've now concluded that that is, indeed, the answer to the
original question.  The fallout question:

  How much understanding of the machinery should be expected
  of the hapless project builder?

Nelson has been doing this stuff for quite a while and has
reasonably good understanding of the process.  From that
understanding, he made the assumption that a standard 64 bit
"Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.5 (Tikanga)"
installation would be compatible with installing Guile via
   ./configure && make && sudo make install
and not wind up with a frumitzed `guile-config link` output.
The assumption was incorrect and we now know that.

Perhaps we can strive to make the assumption correct
in the future?

Thank you!  Regards, Bruce
