Because tools like g-wrap (and any other tool that wants to generate
some code and then build a guile linked executable from within guile)
needs access to that information, and it seems awkward to require them
to invoke an external script when the information is readily available
in their current environment.

It seemed more natural to me to create (ice-9 config) and have it
export commands that return all the link/compile/whatever info, and
then turn guile-config into a trivial #!/usr/bin/guile script that
called those functions and returned the result.
