Super, thank you!

FWIW, --disable-posix has two uses.  One is to work around compilation
failures, and the other is to decrease the "interface size" of Guile.
But sometimes they are a bit entangled, which is the case for scm_getpid
that might get removed when you're just looking to get around some
compilation failure.
