This must come from the lack of /proc/self/exe.

Specifically, “guile-static-stripped” has this patch to make it


This is necessary for the bootstrap Guile (see make-bootstrap.scm), and
was necessary in the initrd on GNU/Linux (I think we no longer need it
for the initrd).

At any rate, you may be able to boot the Hurd with the “real”,
dynamically-linked Guile, no?  That would solve the problem entirely.
