Beware, Guile's CVS repository is no longer used, so software in there
is essentially unmaintained.

As far as `statprof' is concerned, I would recommend using the one
available in Guile-Lib, since it's been maintained there for some time: .  I've used it successfully with 1.8 in
the past.

Is there any particular reason why you don't use 1.8.x?

Can you check whether SIGPROF is actually delivered and whether
`profile-signal-handler' gets called, e.g., by adding a `(display
"foo\n")' call there?
