The status of `(ice-9 slib)' has been discussed recently, the outcome
being that a solution similar to yours should be implemented [0].

However, instead of configure-time detection, I'd rather lean towards
using `load-from-path' without making any configure-time detection.
This would make it clear that SLIB is not a hard dependency and would
allow users to install/upgrade it afterwards.  Is that OK?
