The one in /usr/share/guile/site is from the new (1.9.3) G-Wrap
package (which is not yet in Debian, still stuck in NEW). To find out
where those files belong:

% dpkg -S /usr/share/guile/site/g-wrap.scm
g-wrap: /usr/share/guile/site/g-wrap.scm
% dpkg -S /usr/share/guile/g-wrap.scm
libgwrapguile1: /usr/share/guile/g-wrap.scm

g-wrap conflicts with libgwrapguile-dev, but not libgwrapguile1 (so it
can be parallel-install with e.g. GnuCash, which requires
libgwrapguile1). Those files in fact should be in libgwrapguile-dev,
as they are not needed at runtime; since the old G-Wrap package has no
maintainer ATM, and will be removed from the distribution pretty soon
anyway, this is unlikely to happen, and doesn't matter much, as
/usr/share/guile/site/ precedes /usr/share/guile/ in the %load-path.
