I intend to add a similar mechanism to Guile, but it is not yet done.

You have mispelled the name of the function.  The following (untested)
code should work on Guile 2.0.5 or later:

   char *buf = c_str ();
   size_t len = strlen (buf);
   SCM bv = scm_c_make_bytevector (len);
   memcpy (SCM_BYTEVECTOR_CONTENTS (bv), buf, len);
   str_port_ = scm_open_bytevector_input_port (bv, SCM_UNDEFINED);
