If you want to be really sure, yes.  However, we of course intend to
license all of the Guile core with GPL-exception, and people should be
able find this out without having to scan each file.

I agree that having the exception in README and the manual might not
be obvious enough.  The LICENSE file idea looks very reasonable.

There is one license (GPL+exception) for all of libguile, but not all
files necessarily use GPL+exception.  For example, the support tools
like guile-snarf might use the full GPL (without affecting the license
of libguile).
