Hm. Apparently require is trying to load a binary as a source file,
there. It might be possible that you dynamic loading stuff doesn't
work. Have you the libdl stuff installed?
Do simple tests like this work:

$ cat foo.scm
(print "yow.")
$ csc -vs foo.scm
$ csi


What's the output of "-v" in the invocation of csc above?

Does the SWIG-generated file have a `unit' declaration? If
yes, try (load-library 'guichan "./") instead (but compile it
without the "-s" option, perhaps with something like:

$ csc guichan.scm -c
$ gcc guichan.c -lguichan ... # whatever is needed

That should give you a normal shared library, which `load-library'
is able to load and resolve.
Alternatively, just remove the unit declaration from guichan.scm
and compile with -s.
