Could you provide a backtrace of the segfault?

Does the problem occur on GNU/Linux as well?

Is it a recent regression of your LilyPond package for macOS?

Unfortunately, Guile 1.8 has been unmaintained for several years and its
code base has almost nothing in common with that of 2.0 and later, so I
won’t make any promises.
