Hello José.

Mmm.  Maybe I should fail at configure time in this case, instead of
going on.  [José reported, in private chat, that he saw unintelligible
characters].  I use Unicode non-ASCII characters to print handles, such
as the subscript numbers here:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
guile> (meta:print-procedure-definition 'fixnum:+)
Formals: (a b)
[primitive fixnum:+ a₃₁ b₃₂]₃₃
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

José tested with guile 2.0, which should work, even if it's slower than
1.8 on epsilon.  But if I remember correctly, with Guile 2 we have to
disable bytecode generation, because of some dirty hacks I do with Guile
macros, which are not supported anymore by recent Guiles.

In order to do that, please remove your bytecode files caches under
~/.guile/cache , and try again this time invoking guile+whatever with
the --no-auto-compile option.

Does this solve the issue?
