this case this might be the reason you are seeing different errors at 
different times. May be they fixed something in the toolchain of ia64 

Anyway, the correct (and easiest way IMHO) is to go to

then enter 'guile-1.8' in the box. This leads to

This page gives a nice summary of which builds have succeded and which builds 
have failed. From the above page I see that the guile 1.8.5 failed to build
